Craving Ellie in My Belly: Aromatic Beef Stew with Butternut Squash


CEiMB is Aromatic Beef Stew with Butternut Squash over whole wheat coucous. Kayte of Grandma's Kitchen Table is the host and a wonderful blogging friend! Kayte, I have never been a squash person and this stew changed my whole outlook on the vegetable. Squash is a vegetable isn't it?



I couldn't find just whole wheat couscous but there is a brand called Far East putting out a product called whole wheat couscous with roasted garlic and olive oil. The couscous package took all of 10 minutes from start-to-finish to assemble.


A definite repeat recipe! Go to Kayte's blog and give her a high five for picking out this recipe (Ellie Krieger too since this is her recipe from the cookbook So Easy) then get into your kitchen and try it for yourself! I bet you absolutely LOVE IT! The recipe can be found here.


Check out the rest of the CEiMB bloggers for each and every variation along with phenomenal photos.

Wow that looks great...looking at them all again just makes me want to make it again, like today for example, it was that good! Love the fact that you now will eat some squash, which is, yes, a vegetable! We love squash and this was a happy place for it indeed. Thanks for being so enthusiastic about my pick, I love it when that happens. Especially when it is someone who has such great bloggy food over on her own blog!

That looks so good. Ted loved it. Next time, I'm making it with beans so I can enjoy it as well. I really like the addition of butternut squash. That veggie makes anything taste great.

Yours looks great. Mine seems more tomatowee than yours. Is that a word? I loved the squash in this even though I didn't think I would.

Bri said...

Yep, the squash in this dish converted me, too! I was so pleasantly surprised by this one. Yours looks great with the muffin.

Yours looks fantastic. Nice warm and wintery dish.

Mary said...

I agree on two fronts...this recipe is great and so is Kayte!

Did not think I would like this, but the flavor was wonderful. And since I used the crockpot my kitchen smelled like an exotic spice market when I got home.

Looks tasty.

I had a taste of this at a book signing Ellie did in NYC and remember it being incredibly tasty. From the looks here, you did the dish justice. Looks amazing Shandy.

Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you
knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having trouble finding one?
Thanks a lot!
