…..it is winter and that means stew.
Yes, yes, yes I realize there will be THOUSANDS of stew recipes on the internet this season to had to the millions that already exist. I have narrowed it by a bit since I made this stew vegan. Let’s see what happens.
Do you love vegetables? I do.
Don’t forget Parsley!
Or the homemade bread!
Of course, add some Gardein Beefless Beef Tips!
Keek’s Kitchen Hearty Vegetable Stew
about 8 servings
- 1 white onion (diced)
- 3 cloves garlic (minced)
- 6 Celery stalks (diced)
- 15 carrots (peeled and diced)
- 2tbsp flour
- Small Potatoes – about one dozen – (diced, I kept skin on)
- 1 Sweet potato (peeled and diced)
- 1lb Sugar Snap Peas (cut in half)
- 6 cups of broth of your choice
- 2tbsp of Herbes de Provence from Trader Joe’s
- 2tbsp of nutritional yeast
- Parsley (I added quite a bit)
Optional: Fresh bread, Gardein Beefless Beef tips
- Add onion, garlic, celery, and carrots to a large soup pot with 1 cup of your broth. Let this cook about 10 minutes.
- Add flour and stir.
- Add the rest of the broth. OK, for the broth I used a vegan beef-like broth. You can use veggie, chicken, actual beef, or mushroom even! I think mushroom broth could be quite tasty in this stew. (now regretting not adding mushrooms to this stew!)
- Add potato, sweet potato, and snap peas.
- Add Herbes de Provence.
- Cook this for 30 – 40 minutes, until potatoes are soft and the liquid has thickened.
- Add Nutritional Yeast and freshly minced parsley
- Cook for 30 minutes or more
- Cook Gardein Beefless Beef Tips in a separate pan. Spray with olive oil and brown them for about 5 minutes on each side with the stove on medium high.
When I make stew, I’m not keeping the best track of time, I just let things happen…. who am I kidding I end up doing this for most of the things I cook. Needless to say, if you are following my recipe please just keep track of the taste and the softness of your potatoes. If you noticed, I didn’t use salt. This is because I find that broth is typically salty enough for my tastes.
I also made a gorgeous loaf of bread to eat with this dish.

Do you love leftovers? I do. This means I have lunches or dinners for a couple more nights this week when I end up staying late for work.
