This whole grain butternut squash stew is loaded with comforting flavors like a chili, but with more vegetables. The chunks of squash become tender and smooth, giving it a buttery texture with a complex taste. It’s an amazingly gourmet twist on a rather simple one-pot slow cooker dish. Using the whole grains of wheat, Kamut® or rye help keep you full for hours.
