|Stew by Csaba Moldován|
To ward off Winter's chill nothing works as well as a hearty stew. Here's one that is healthier than most and can be cooked in a single pot. These easiest way to do this is to prepare everything before leaving for work and to let it simmer in a crock pot all day. The aroma that will greet your return home is very inviting. The key to this recipe is the tofu, which gives you another vegetable, keeps the dish's protein content high and replaces saturated fat with healthy fat. The tofu will pick up flavor from the beef.
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, activated by heat which has a correlation with reduced risk of prostate cancer. Cruciferous vegetables like cabbage and broccoli have been associated with lower risks of lung and colon cancer. Red peppers are rich in vitamin A&C. Shitake mushrooms are immune systems boosters.

Beef Tofu Stew
1/2 lb lean beef
Put aside the red pepper. Dice everything else into bite size pieces, including the tofu which should be in half inch cubes. Put everything in the pot. Add two cups of water for the barley, and then add at least three additional cups of water or more according to how thick you want to make the stew.
In a regular pot, bring to a boil, then turn down the heat to simmer for an hour until the vegetables are tender. In a crock pot simply put it on low all day.
Dice and add the red pepper ten minutes before serving. Do not eat the bay leaf.
This is a complete low calorie meal in a bowl.
Accompany this with a glass of a robust red wine, such as a cabernet, which is rich in resveratrol. If you prefer drink a glass of hot green tea, loaded with anti-oxidants. A teaspoon of honey per serving adds just 20 calories.
