Eat bean stew for late lunch or early dinner. It gets better after a day or two in the fridge. Skip eating it in late afternoons or evenings as it can be heavy for the digestive system at night.
*If using a regular pot, cooking time will be longer. The beans are done when they're soft, but not falling apart, about 60-90 min.
Gluten-free: use gluten-free kielbasa and bouillon cube. Vegeta is gluten-free.
