Hearty Chicken Stew with Butternut Squash and Quinoa Remix
This time of year always makes me want to snuggle up in blankets and eat a warm bowl of soup. If you are like me and have diet restrictions for medical reasons, you can’t just pick up a box of soup at your local Trader Joe’s to cure your cravings. You have to be a little more creative. I have sought high and low for a tasty soup/stew recipe that is amazing and I am excited to announce that I believe I have found it. Over a year ago a friend made me a recipe from Cookin' Canuck and I was in heaven. I revisited this recipe this year and have adapted it into an IC (Interstitial Cystitis) friendly meal that the entire family will enjoy. There have been quite a few alterations, but the extra spices give it a punch of flavor so that it is more savory and less bland (which is a big battle with IC recipes). The bonus is this stew is extremely healthy. You can stick to your IC diet, your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier and have comfort food all at the same time!!
