End of Summer Bean Stew

Yes, it is official, the end of summer is here and I like it! Not only because there is a great variety of fruits and veggies available but because days are getting cooler, I am not a fan of extreme temperatures so I'll enjoy it while I can :-). The dish I will share next is perfect for these days, especially if it's raining! Besides using my recipe, you can experiment with other grated or chopped vegetables, that's the good thing about stews, you can use whatever is available.

Hope you like it as much as we did, enjoy!
