I was in the mood for some comfort food tonight so I decided to make a nice thick stew. I based my ingredients off of a recipe I read in Skinny Bitch in the Kitch. It basically has carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, peas, onion and parsnips that were cooked in a broth of vegetable stock and a little bit of cooking sherry since I did not want to open up a bottle of wine. I thickened it with whole wheat pastry flour and threw in some chunks of "chicken" flavoured soy that I had picked up in Portland last year. The stew turned out great, full of chunky vegetables and very comforting. Although we found that the chunks of soy were extremely salty.
