Healthy Recipe of the Week – Harvest Stew with Smoked Sausage

Waking up to the cold and wet weather this morning, I felt sorry for all the trick or treaters that will loyally still go out tonight in the spirit of Halloween tradition and fun. However this dedicated group of kids will also include an accompaniment of dedicated parents/loved ones that will look after them, even on a miserable night for a stroll around the block.

Don’t be fooled by this harvest stew though, while the seasonal root vegetables and squash make it very nutritious, it is packed full of savory flavor from the sausage that will keep you coming back for seconds. I had mine with a few slices of french bread I picked up on the way home this weekend, and my family loved it.
