Wow, this stew is one of the best, most satisying things, I've eaten in a long time.
It is healthy, hearty, and delicious while still being light somehow. It also manages to fill one up with just one serving.
Changes I made:
*Used a red jalapeno instead of a habanero. For myself a habanero would have caused my insides to rebel. The jalapeno was spicy enough for me to be glad I used it instead.
*Instead of butternut squash I used yellow crookneck squash. I personally enjoy less sweet squashes so this worked well.
*Lastly, I have a mild allergy to cashews so I used almond butter in its place and it also worked very well.
This is a recipe I will be making again and again.
