STOVE TOP: Sautee mushrooms, seasoning blend, and garlic in a large saucepan for 7-8 minutes. Add the spices and saute for another 2 minutes. Add the remaining stew ingredients except for the kale. Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Remove the lid stir in the chopped kale. Re-lid and remove the pan from the heat.
PUMPKIN NOTE: Recommend using a white pumpkin versus the traditional Halloween-type (orange) pumpkin because the flesh is more flavorful.
