The cooler weather brings with it the inevitable longing for comfort foods, and what can be more comforting than curling up with a warm bowl of stew? I have dozens of recipes for belly warming vegan stews in the archives, and I wanted to list for you my 20 favorites, the ones I make again and again and never tire of.
These recipes span the globe, from a French Cassoulet to a Cuban Black Bean Stew, from a Lebanese Chickpea Stew to an Ethiopian Lentil Stew, from a Caribbean Black Eyed Peas Stew to a Louisiana Gumbo, from a Tuscan Bean Stew to a vegan Irish "Lamb" Stew, from a Goan Feijoada to a Moroccan Chickpea Stew.
You will also find here cozy favorites, like a vegan "Beef" Stew and an easy Instant Pot Butter "Chicken."
GREAT, thanks for the variety of stews from all over, specially when its going to get cold tonight!!! I had just bought the brussel spouts stem from TJoes and made that one as I had all the ingredients except for curry leaves but I substituted some cilantro, it was delicious! I cannot for the life of me see how some people don't like brussel sprouts!
I've tried the gumbo, African stew and white bean chilli from this list and loved all of them. The African peanut stew especially. All were one pot meals that came together fairly quickly (I'm a very slow cook) and lasted forever in my one person household! I see a whole host of mushroom recipes that I need to try! Thank you for the list, it's helpful to see a recipes like this once in a while and spot the ones that I missed.
Hi Krithika, makes me so happy to know you've tried -- and liked -- these recipes. Made my day! 🙂
Do you know which of these are freezer friendly? Vegan son and daughter-in-law are expecting twin siblings for their 2 yr old soon. I'm freezing meals as fast as I can and loving every minute of it. 🙂
Hi Mary, all of these stews should freeze well. Make sure you cool thoroughly before putting in the freezer. Potatoes and tofu can lose their texture when frozen, so in recipes which call for those, I would probably leave them out or add just before reheating.
Lovely! gonna try them !It is sub zero here in Canada
Brrr...Desi hates even slightly warm weather and loves the cold. He's often said he wants to move to Canada. 🙂 I'm sure the warm weather today has him wishing that more than ever!
looks delicious--will try very soon
looks good ! I will try very soon
Wow! These look wonderful. Saving this post, as it is 92 degrees in California today. 🙁
Thanks, SAR, it's a warm day here today too, at 81 degrees. 🙂 But we've had some pretty cool days already.
do you know "vegan" excludes lamb? i'm unsubscribing. best wishes.
I wish you'd have taken the time to look before passing judgment-- this is obviously a vegan lamb stew made with TVP. If you wish to unsubscribe, that's up to you.
Wow. Byeee! And pass the TVP <3
These recipies are vegan versions of famous international dishes. No lamb.
