"When my granddaughter was 3, she had a bear that sang a song about 'root stew'," recalls Alice McCabe of Climax, New York. "She thought he was talking about tree roots, so I took her to the store to buy root veggies, and we made this stew."
This healthy stew is one of my husband's favorite meals. I always use fresh mushrooms, and I toss low-sodium bouillon cubes right into the roaster…no dissolving first in liquid. No additional salt is necessary. —Patricia Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania
