I made the Winter Squash and White Bean Stew yesterday evening. It was the perfect lunch today. I found the recipe in the Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook that my stepsister gave me. here is the recipe:

Winter Squash and White Bean Stew

  • 1 cup chopped onion (I used white)
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (You might be tempted to add more but this is the perfect amount.)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 cups peeled, cubed butternut squash
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth (I used one can vegetable broth and it was awesome)
  • 19 oz can cannellini beans, drained
  • 14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped, fresh cilantro (I used 1/2 Tbsp. of the dry cilantro and it was fine)

Add all ingredient to the crock pot. Cover. Cook on High 1 hour. Cook on Low 2-3 hours. Enjoy! Like I said, I had a cup of this with a salad for lunch and I was full all afternoon. It feels good to eat healthy 🙂
