How to Make Gluten-Free Hobo Stew
This gluten-free hobo stew features sweet potatoes, which are a wonderful addition to a more traditional stew. They’re nutritious, they contain a large amount of beta carotene, and they have a low glycemic index — plus, they’re easy on the budget.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 7 hours
Yield: 6 servings
1 to 1-1/2 pounds stew meat
1 large russet potato, peeled and cut into large cubes
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into large cubes
1 small package baby carrots
1 large onion, sliced
2-1/2 pound can diced tomatoes
1 cup tomato juice
2 slices gluten-free bread
3/4 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon arrowroot flour or other thickening agent, such as cornstarch
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
