Broth: if you use chicken or vegetable broth rather than water or low-sodium broth, it's important to adjust the seasoning at the end and not at the beginning, as you never really know how salty the broth is. Storage: this potato stew will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days. It will absorb all the liquid significantly as it sits and to reheat, add some water until it’s thinned to the desired consistency, then gently warm over medium-low heat. It's also freezable.Recipe variations: for more plant-based protein, you can add either 1 can of chickpeas, 1 can of white beans or 3/4 or 1 cup of dried lentils. Rinse, drain and add them to the recipe when you add the potatoes. Whatever pulses you decide to use, make sure to adjust the quantity of broth accordingly, and keep in mind the dried lentils needs more liquid than canned beans. Trust your judgement and add liquid until you get the desired consistency.Nutrition facts: the nutrition values are for one serving and are based on an online nutrition calculator.
