Hearty Vegan Summer Stew

“This is a savory and filling summer stew with acorn squash and beans. I believe I found this recipe originally on Vegetarian Times and modified it a bit. It makes a hearty stew that is incredibly filling. It is quite a healthy dish and should suit meat eaters and not alike.”
