Delicious stew

I was looking for recipes to use the turnips from our garden. This recipe was great. But I found two cups of chicken stock to be enough. I suggest using chicken stock with the corn starch (why dilute the stew flavor?). Also, a bit more salt and pepper required.

Hearty, easy, tasty
Dinner time!
Really good

I really liked this. I used portobellos instead because I think they have more flavor.

The only negative I have is the cornstarch. I added it this time, but would leave it out if I make it again. I don't think it really makes too much of a difference in terms of actually thickening the soup (not sure why it needed thickening either) and adds unnecessary calories/processed ingredient.

Otherwise no complaints! It's very delicious! I've also frozen and reheated it and it's just as good.

Simple and very flavorful

Great winter meal that takes advantage of winter ingredients. Comes together very quickly. A keeper.

Cheap, easy

A keeper. No changes.

Fast, easy, so delicious, cheap
Great winter meal

This was a great stew! We had enough to feed four plus left overs. The turnips added a unique flavor and we ate it with olive bread that had just the right amount of salt.

simple ingredients and a lot of flavor
