Recipe:  Bean & Tomato Stew—Square Edge

 Shared by: Paula Schaffner – California Central Coast Chapter

For eight months in 1986, the David Schaffner family experienced life in Palmerston North, New Zealand, through a sabbatical exchange. One treat was having lunch at the vegetarian restaurant in the Square Edge Building—so named because it sits on the edge of the city center square.

Living in New Zealand gave us a taste for crossing borders, and bringing home some Kiwi recipes has helped keep alive memories of our life there. Now I make this bean stew occasionally for our at-home dinners or as an easy make-ahead dish for potlucks.
