This is the first “stew” I have had in well over 4 years. It has all the accompanying cast of characters that make a good stew and it is delish. Not much else to say except that it was fun to make and I hope you have a good time with it too. You will need the following recipes minus the capers & lemon juice & your potatoes could also very easily be Brabant “Potatoes”

Notes
  1. This stew certainly stands alone served in a bowl but here are a couple suggestions.
  2. Since it already has cauliflower in it another way to serve it is might be over sautéed spinach-yea-one more vegetable.
  3. If you opt to use the "Brabant Potatoes" then you could then serve over mashed cauliflower.
