Hearty Brown Stew

Another oddly titled recipe from the McDougalls. It is simple, low fat and tasty. No exotic or hard to find ingredients.  The original recipe calls for ¼ cup tomato juice but I just threw in a chopped up tomato instead and that worked fine. Oh, and pardon my crappy photo of the end product. It tastes better than it looks. Honest!

What you will need:
1 onion, sliced (optional)
2 stalks celery, thickly sliced
2 carrots, thickly sliced
3 potatoes, cut into chunks
1 green bell capsicum, cut into strips (optional)
250g mushrooms, quartered
1 tomato, chopped
2 cloves of garlic (optional)
2 tbsp low sodium soy or tamari sauce
½ tbsp fresh grated ginger
½ tsp fried marjoram
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp paprika
3 tbsp cornstarch, mixed with ½ cup cold water


Combine all the ingredients except for the cornstarch mixture, in a large pot. Bring to boil and then lower heat. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour or until vegetables are tender. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir until thickened. Serve.
