Yield: Yields 10 to 12 cups of stew
Servings: 4 to 6
Similar to potpie, this colorful, aromatic, and healthful stew is incredibly satisfying (with your eyes closed, you’d be hard-pressed to pinpoint the absence of meat). Plan ahead; the puff pastry needs to be thawed (which takes 1 to 2 hours at room temperature or 2 to 3 hours in the fridge). If you’d like to make more pastry circles, purchase two packages of puff pastry. To refashion the dish as vegan, simply omit the puff pastry and instead serve your stew with a loaf of whole-grain country bread. If you’re watching your fat and calories, omit the pastry and top the stew with a dollop of Greek yogurt.

Loving butternut squash, I expected to like this but it was so very much better than I was expecting. I'm not sure where this stew acquires all it's flavor but it is darn good. I did not use/do the step of puff pastry but instead served it with crusty rolls - big time/effort saver. And, while the puff pastry would be deliciously novel, I was happy to save the time and calories. Also, I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth but I'm sure it would be just as good with veggie broth. Wonderful fall/winter dish. Enjoy!!
