Stewed quail

I like to share traditional recipes from time to time, from the family, so today I share with you this recipe of stewed quail. Although I simply love quail grilled, my grandfather loved stewed with vegetables and that is how my grandmother prepared them.

Quail meat is soft and tasty at the same time, it is a meat with little caloric intake and its proteins are of high nutritional value as they contain essential amino acids. So it is highly recommended to add it to our diet. If we also accompany them with some vegetables as in this recipe we get a rich and healthy dish.
