Recipe Ingredients for Acorn Squash Stew

14 7/10 oz tomatoes
11 7/10 oz onion
4 cloves garlic
4 oz portabella mushrooms
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp cumin seeds
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp chilli powder
20 4/5 oz acorn squash
1 1/2 tsp turmeric
3 cups water
1 tsp cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Acorn Squash Stew

  1. In a large heavy-bottomed pot, heat olive oil and saute the onion for a few minutes. Add the cinnamon and chili powder and continue to saute for another 2 minutes. Mix in the garlic and cumin seeds, saute for 2 minutes more before adding lemon juice and the tomatoes. Mix thoroughly so the stew doesn't get too chunky.

  2. Stir the squash, pinto beans and water into the stew. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let the stew simmer for 1 hour, or until squash is tender. Stirring occasionally throughout the cooking hour, and add more water if necessary. The finished stew should have a nice, thick stewy texture.

  3. Salt chicken and sear in seperate frying pan. Reduce stew heat to simmer and nestle chicken breasts into stew. Continue to simmer covered for 20 minutes.
