Cajun Chicken And Veg Stew



I have been making quite a few stews and soups and experimenting with the root vegetables. This is because I have been under the weather recently. Beetroot is amazing in these stews. Even better are the beet greens. They have a similar texture to spinach. Also, beet greens have some health benefits too.

Admittedly, I was fascinated by transformation of the stew when it changed colour. Most importantly, I felt so reenergised the next day after eating this stew.
