Meatless and Vegetarian Stews
jump to the recipes
A stew is essentially any dish that is prepared by the cooking method of stewing. Usually this term applies to recipes that include meat (beef, chicken, pork) but it can also apply to meatless or vegetarian stews.
Stewing is when you just cover the food with liquid and simmer it for a very long time. The long cooking time helps the flavors blend. When cooking a vegetable only stew, typically this cooking time is reduced.
Meatless stews typically get their hearty texture from beans or potatoes. Sweet potatoes work very well with this cooking process. These stews can be served as a main course, a vegetarian alternative, or a side dish or lunch meal.
