There is nothing more comforting on a cold winter day than a hot bowl of stoup. A stoup is a cross between a soup and a stew – it’s not quite as thin as a soup, but not quite as thick as a stew either. I don’t know about you but after 8 days of cooking and entertaining, I just don’t feel like sitting in the kitchen, even if it’s just to prepare dinner. That’s why I love this recipe. It’s an easy one-dish meal that is great for kids and extremely budget friendly. With fire-roasted tomatoes and franks, this hearty dish is reminiscint of summer bbq’s.
