Vegan Recipes : Kale Vegetable Stew
Category : Vegan Recipes
Who doesn’t love a good, hearty bowl of stew on a cold winter day? Fortunately, I’ve got brand new vegan recipes for kale vegetable stew that I think you’re going to love. These vegan recipes will make about 6 servings of stew, but you can easily double the ingredients if you need to make more. On the other hand, if you don’t eat it all at once, freeze the leftovers, and you have ready made lunch or dinner for any other night of the week.
To make these vegan recipes, here are the ingredients that you are going to need to have on hand:
- 1 whole bunch of kale
- ½ cup of red kidney beans
- 1 ¼ cup of mixed dry beans and lentils
- 8 cups cold water in large pot with lid –boil beans for ¾ of an hour, then add:
- 1 800 ml can of diced tomatoes (preferably no or low salt)
- 1 can of small sweet peas
- 4 stalks chopped celery
- 2 medium yellow onion finely chopped
- 4 large carrots diced or grated
- 1 whole floret of garlic, minced
- 8 large mushrooms, finely chopped
- 1 large bay leaf
- 1 tablespoon rosemary
- 1 tablespoon thyme
- 1 tablespoon turmeric
You will need to start preparing these vegan recipes the night before. Start off by thoroughly washing your kale. You’ll need to drain them, remove the stems, and finely, finely chop them up. Next, take your dry beans and lentils and cover them with plenty of water. They’ll need to soak for about 12 hours. Once they are done soaking, rinse them off and drain them.
Next, add all of your ingredients into a large pot, minus the kale. Let them cook on medium high heat for about 35 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Next, add in the kale and let the soup cook for another 25 minutes. Remove about ½ of the stew from the pot and run it through your blender. Then, you can add it back into the pot. Stir in the sweet peas and continue cooking until the peas are thoroughly heated.
Go ahead and portion out the stew you will be serving into bowls, and sprinkle each bowl with a generous serving of vegan parmesan cheese. Add a little salt and pepper to taste. Now, it’s time to enjoy these delicious vegan recipes!
