From Regina, Saskatchewan, Penny Giles writes, “A Canadian prairie winter can be bone-chilling. A bowl of this meatless stew over couscous, rice or with cornbread is all it takes to warm us up. It’s hearty, tasty and—unbeknownst to your family—healthy, too!“ stew can be served over rice (note to editors: this is not meatless because of the beef broth)

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3 large carrots, chopped

  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
