SO HOW'D IT GO?

Easy to make! Very good! pain in the ass to prep though. Lucky I keep chopped veggies on hand. Do not add barley, keep it separate and add it to your bowl before you eat. It soaks up everything and gets mushy if you let it sit. I would suggest swapping out two cups of water for 16 oz of tomato paste, but I like my stews thick and creamier (without the cream!). Kidney beans didn't do anything for it and could be swapped or left out. I also added kale. If you don't have ginger, don't worry about it. It didn't really come out unless you bit into it.
