Is it cold where you are? Is it snowing? Is it raining? Is it grey? Do you really need potatoes?
For today’s Meat Free Monday, try taking a traditional beef stew and making it vegetarian! Here are some suggestions:
- Replace beef with seitan chunks for the easiest “fake beef” taste - just saute in olive oil in a pan first, then add to the pot near the end of cooking.
- Similarly, try using dried porcini mushrooms. Soak in water for 30 minutes prior to cooking soup, then add to the pan with the rest of the veg.
- For a different texture and taste with a still-hearty feel, add in any kind of beans to the veg mix.
