Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.

Step 2

Add the cubed butternut squash to the pot and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the squash starts to soften slightly.

Step 3

Stir in the corn kernels and cooked beans, and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Step 4

Pour in the vegetable broth and add the ground cumin and dried oregano. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5

Bring the stew to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the squash is tender and the flavors have melded together.

Step 6

Taste the stew and adjust the seasonings if needed.

Step 7

Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro if desired.
