 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Olive oil
  • 4 c Peeled and diced pumpkin; or
  • -other winter squash
  • 1 lg Onion; coarsely chopped
  • 2 c Coarsely diced celery
  • 2 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 1 Green bell pepper; cored,
  • -seeded, diced
  • 1 Red bell pepper; cored,
  • -seeded, diced
  • 14 1/2 oz Fresh-cut diced tomatoes
  • -with herbs; canned
  • 1 c Fresh or frozen corn
  • 2 c Fresh or frozen green beans;
  • -cut in 1" pieces
  • 2 c Vegetable stock or water
  • 1 tb Mild chili powder
  • 1/2 ts Fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1 ts Salt or to taste


Heat a large skillet or Dutch oven over high heat and add the olive oil.
When the oil is hot, add the cubes of pumpkin and saute for 5 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Add the onion, celery and garlic and saute for
another 5 minutes or until the onion becomes soft. Add the green and red
bell peppers, tomatoes, corn, green beans, stock or water, chili powder,
pepper and salt and cook, covered, over low heat for 25 minutes or until
the vegetables are tender. (6 servings).

If you visit a co-op or health-food store, look in the bulk section for
vegetarian chicken broth. It's made with brewer's yeast and tastes very
much like a homestyle chicken stock. It will add another layer of flavor to
this dish. For the tomatoes, try to find the relatively new "fresh cut"
canned ones from Del Monte or Hunt's. They're firmer than most. I like to
serve this on a bed of cooked, buttered quinoa. Quinoa, which can be found
in health-food stores, is an ancient grain used by the Incas. It has a very
high protein content and a lovely rich flavor.

As with many stews, this will taste even better the day after cooking.
