This Gluten-Free Vegan Beefless “Beef” Stew is a hearty stew that’s perfect for a Meatless Monday meal.
When I was a child, one meal that was on regular rotation in our home was Beef Stew. I enjoyed it, but always picked out the meat because my favorite part was the soft potatoes and carrots in the seasoned gravy.
So for my own family, I revised the classic comfort meal I grew up with and made with without any beef at all because a) I would never buy beef and b) it tastes just as good without it.
It’s a perfect dinner meal to make for a cold fall or winter evening and it’s a one pot recipe which means it’s really easy to make.
After you prep all the veggies, all you have to do it put everything in one pot and let it simmer for about 30-45 minutes, checking it and stirring it every 15 minutes or so.
It’s a very budget-friendly meal too, but if you want to make it even more filling, you can add organic white or brown rice to go with it.
This healthier recipe is made with clean, real food ingredients and is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free.
