I'm trying to figure out how to make a stew that includes all of these ingredients. Of course I'd like the beans to cook thoroughly, and I've heard that the tomatoes would not allow beans to soften. So I'm wondering about how to time things.
Should I cook the beans with the acorn squash, and once they're cooked throw in the okra and the tomatoes?
Or should I give up on the idea of making one big stew of it all...
Thanks in advance,
