Soups and stews can be a healthy addition to any holiday celebration. Be sure to use plenty of plant-based foods to maximize the nutrition of your meal. Soups and stews are a great way to increase your vegetable, starchy vegetable, legume, and even grain intake. Any mediocre soup or stew can become an amazing one with the addition of a simple thickener. Thicken soups/stews with nut/seed/peanut butter, pureed beans, or even pureed orange starchy vegetable such as pumpkin/butternut squash. Try this delicious stew which is thickened with almond butter. If avoiding nuts, use any of the other aforementioned foods as an alternative.
