Nutrition Tips

To boost vegetables, add 2 cups fresh, chopped carrots or cubed butternut squash for final 45 minutes of cooking time.

To cut saturated fat, prepare with 1 pound extra lean beef or bison, and trim off any visible, solid fat from meat, or go Vegetarian. Prepare with 1 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1/2 tablespoon butter instead of 2 tablespoons butter to brown onions.

To cut sodium, prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
