White Bean Vegetable Stew Vegan

White Bean Vegetable Stew

My white bean vegetable stew is a very yummy, healthy protein meal filled with vegetables. This stew is high in potassium for those of you who need a boost in that area.  Also, half a cup of white beans is loaded with close to 100 mg of calcium.
