This recipe was given to me last year by a friend so I take no credit for it's creation. But it's become one of my favorites and with the fresh kale and sweet potatoes just delivered from the organic farm I'm all set to make it again. It's also a good way to use what is left of my garden herbs. Although the recipe is for dried, sub with fresh is only going to make the stew better. can also be adapted to stove top
