Asian Vegetable Stew

East meets west tonight in this terrific Western-style stew with an Asian accent.  Lots of plentiful root vegetables; sweet potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, yam, rutabaga and onion inhabit this stew. It has fresh cilantro and basil with citrus overtones that are all worked into a European-style brown gravy. You’ll also make some delicious and hearty marinated/grilled tofu to add to this meal. Make it early in the day. You’ll find the recipe in “Tips and Time Savers”. Use commercially made Asian-style Baked Tofu if not making Marinated/Grilled Tofu.
