Vegetarian Irish Stew
Rating (0 Rated)
Classic Irish stew is hearty, rich and heavy on beef or lamb. It’s delicious, but so is this vegetarian version that’s full flavored and soulful. You can add your favorite vegetarian meat substitute, like seitan or tempeh, but the vegetables shine very nicely on their own. Serve with Irish soda bread and cold beer, of course!

1. Finely chop celery, 2 of the onions and 4 mushrooms. Heat olive oil in a large soup pot and add chopped vegetables. Cook until softened and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, chop the remaining onion, potatoes and carrots into large chunks. Set aside.
3. Add flour to the softened mixture and stir to coat. Cook for 2 minutes. Pour in stout and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until all vegetables are fork tender, about 45 minutes.
