Garden Vegetable Stew

1 large onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 carrots, chopped
2 summer squashes, chopped
2 tsp. vegetable oil
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1 8-ounce can stewed tomatoes
4 cups vegetable stock
2 cups sliced okra
3 cups corn kernels
1 cup lima beans
2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
3 tbs. light brown sugar
2 tbs. vinegar
3 tbs. ketchup
1 tbs. cornstarch
1 tsp. water
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup grated Swiss cheese for garnish

In a saucepan, saute the onion, garlic, carrots, and squash in the oil until the vegetables are just tender. In a large stockpot, combine the sauteed vegetables with all the remaining ingredients except the cheese and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer for about 1 hour. Sprinkle the cheese on top of each serving just before serving.

Note: If you like your stew with some spice to it, you can add some hot sauce with the ingredients as they simmer.
