Expert Tips

Not an onion lover? Diced tomatoes with roasted garlic can be substituted for the diced tomatoes with garlic and onion.

For a medley of Mediterranean flavors, serve this stew with a fresh spinach salad topped with crumbled feta cheese and sliced fresh figs. Sesame or poppy seed-topped bread makes a great accompaniment.
