Warming Up with Turmeric Harvest Stew

Posted by New Chapter on October 23, 2018

Warming Up with Turmeric Harvest Stew

After a stellar summer in Vermont, we are now harvesting squash, carrots, potatoes, and apples in abundance.  On a cloudy, cool day when the wind is crisp and gloves are finally necessary, I can’t wait to get into the kitchen to create a heartwarming meal for my family.

I often choose to make vegetarian meals, opting in the fall for the textures of fresh root vegetables and spices that warm the belly. With October being Vegetarian Awareness Month, it’s the perfect time to experiment! Turmeric Harvest Stew balances spices with sweet apple and coconut milk transforming the hearty vegetables into a feast that the whole family will love.

Inspired by New Chapter’s 100% vegetarian herbals, this stew includes Turmeric plus Cinnamon, Ginger, and Garlic. Cultures from around the world have used these herbs for tonic and culinary purposes for hundreds of years. Check out our full Force line of pure whole herbals.
