Chilean Harvest Stew
This recipe is from Extending the Table Mennonite Cookbook. It is insanely good. It just so happens that my mother in law in the one who submitted the recipe in the actual cookbook when they were living in Chile. We have probably made this recipe six times this season. Its super healthy and delicious. We usually increase the spices and garlic, but here is the original recipe and you can play with it however you want!
