Our Nutrition expert, Melanie Waxman, has shared this vegan recipe from the typical stew known as “Jota”. Jota is a nourishing bean stew from the northern Adriatic region. It usually has some meat and includes sauerkraut. However, this vegan version is rejuvenating and provides a lovely kick of energy.  Don’t hesitate to try this recipe that tastes great too!
