This fall harvest stew is a hearty dinner recipe featuring fresh vegetables of the season. This healthy meal is delicious on a cold fall or winter night.
This stew is a great meal for a cool fall or winter evening. You may recall from my squash tortilla soup recipe that I don’t love squash, but since I get a lot of it from my farm share in the fall, I find ways to enjoy it.
The combination of flavors in this fall harvest stew is complex, with sweet apples and squash coming together nicely with spicy sausage and seasonings. It’s based on this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens, but I adjusted it to suit our tastes.
