Sometimes I struggle to find a vegan meal that isn’t a salad.
I want a meatless, healthy meal that is hearty and filling, but doesn’t put me into a half-napping-zombie-post-carb state. It's indisputable these days that incorporating vegan eating (partially or fully) into one’s diet is beneficial, so....
...that led me to develop this hearty vegan stew - it's creamy, rich, filling and beautifully free of grains (trust me you won’t miss them!)
I also wanted to use my favorite new find, jackfruit. "What's jackfruit?" you ask...
This stew is like a hug in a bowl! Plant based, made from sustainable ingredients, healthy and comforting:
1 yellow onion, roughly chopped
1 lg. Idaho potato, peeled and cubed into bite sized pieces
6 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
3 carrots, peeled and sliced into rounds
1 (14 oz.) can Jackfruit, drained, rinsed and cut into bite sized pieces
1 (13.5 oz.) can full fat coconut milk
1 (13.5 oz.) can lite coconut milk
1 (13.5 oz.) can water
2 T. Nutritional yeast
2 tsp. “Better Than Bullion” vegetable base
Ready for the easiest directions ever?!
Combine all ingredients in a soup pot, bring to a boil then turn to simmer for 40 minutes until nicely thickened. Enjoy!
I believe cooking and eating should not be a source of anxiety in your life. It is the simplest of pleasures and should, at its core, remain simple.
