Ojibwe Stew is the traditional one-pot meal. One-pot meals that have long been part of the foodways of the Ojibwe.
The earliest recorded accounts of their lives tell of the cook fire in the center of the wigwam or in the area outside where a single large birch-bark container held stew of some kind.
Variations: Vegetables can vary as to amount and kinds. Also, some cooks use more wild rice, while others use more liquid and call the dish soup.
