Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Chablis, and Malbec are my top picks for Stew. Full-bodied red wines like malbec and cabernet sauvignon are the perfect accompaniment for beef stew. Fish stew probably calls for a white wine, such as chablis. You could try Eden Canyon Vineyards “RESERVE” Cabernet Sauvignon. Reviewers quite like it with a 5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 63 dollars per bottle.

Eden Canyon Vineyards “RESERVE” Cabernet Sauvignon

SILVER MEDAL - 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. In 2005, we enjoyed an ideal growing and harvest season. The combination produced a beautiful yield of chocolate and strawberry flavors, so we decided to make our first Reserve wine. This unfiltered cab aged for 21 months in 100% new French Allier, Troncais, and Centre oak barrels. Our small production, handcrafted wines are produced with minimal intervention, reflecting our vineyard's full influence in the winemaking process. Our estate vineyard produces low yield and high-quality grapes that are crushed and de-stemmed within minutes of handpicking. We produce about 2,000 cases a year of consistent, balanced, low sulfites, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and nature friendly wines.

Instructions

1.Start by making the pittas. Mix the flours, cumin seeds and salt in a bowl. Separately dissolve the yeast and sugar in a little of the warm water 2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the yeast mixture, olive oil and enough of the remaining water and slowly incorporate the wet ingredients to make a firm but soft dough 3. On a floured surface knead the dough for a good 10 minutes (here's where you burn all your calories) or until smooth and elastic in texture. Place in an oiled bowl, cover and leave it to rise for 1 hour or until it has doubled in size. I like to wrap the bowl in a duvet, it works like a treat 4. Knock back the dough for 2-3 minutes, then cover and prove again for 5 minutes 5. Divide the dough into 4 and shape it into little rolls on a floured surface and with a rolling pin flatten the dough into the characteristic oval pitta shape. Cover and prove for 10 minutes 6. Preheat the oven to 220C and get started on the stew: in a heavy based pan let the oil get hot and brown the chicken. Remove from pan and set aside 7. Fry the onion and harissa until the onion softens. Add lentils and carrots and fry for a couple of minutes 8. Return the chicken to the pan and add all remaining ingredients. Cover and cook it on medium to low heat for about 30-50 minutes 9. Lightly cover a baking tray (or even better a clay baking stone if you have one) with flour and preheat in the oven for 5 minutes. Place the pittas on the hot baking tray and bake for 5-10 minutes or until they are puffed up. 10. Serve the stew with the pittas while they are still warm.
