    potatoless stew

    Primal Fuel
    So I feel like making a stew but haven't made any since going primal. Can anyone suggest a recipe that doesn't contain potatoes. Or is it as simple as not putting any in and upping the amount of other veges and meat?

    I've made a delicious stew with yams instead of potatos. And red wine in the gravy - YUMMY!

    I happily eat potatoes so this isn't an issue for me! But often I'll use carrots, turnips and either parsnip or celeriac, with lamb chops to make a potato-less stew. Delicious! I like to put a couple of sprigs of rosemary in there....

    Turnips make a great potato substitute, or yams.

    Use potatoes if you want to, or leave them out, or whatever. You CAN change recipes, you know. Or just use them as rough guidelines.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    Turnips make awesome potato stand-ins, as does upping the rest of the veggies or dumping several handfuls of greens in your bowl before pouring the stew over.

    Jicama cubed just as you would potatoes in stew gives you the texture and satisfaction of a potato. Yummy!
