We love quick and easy meals and it doesn’t get much easier than Hoosier Stew. All the ingredients are cooked in one pot. Yes, that’s right… only one dish to clean up! Plan this meal for evenings you know you won’t have a lot of time to cook dinner but still want to serve something delicious.

You can make this dish with frozen or canned green beans, but fresh tastes best. Did you know green beans contain loads of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and flavonoids? One such flavonoid, catechin, has been shown to reduce body fat and prevent obesity. Yes, please! Additionally, green beans are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, betacarotene, folate, and B-vitamins.  Green beans are always something you can feel good about dishing out onto your plate!
