Quick and Healthy Veggie Stew

Who doesn't enjoy a hearty warm stew, especially when the chilly weather rolls in?
I substituted the usual white potatoes with sweet potatoes and added broccoli rabe for the extra health benefits. You can experiment with any vegetables you have on hand, as this broth is difficult to mess up.
For a thicker stew, add more cornstarch and simmer for a few more minutes with the lid off.
