There is something childishly enjoyable about autumn stews.

Maybe it’s the simple, uncomplicated ritual of bringing everything together in a pot and everyone together at the table.

Satisfyingly brewing and bubbling, rich in color and nutritional value a good ol’ stew will brighten up the windiest, darkest day.

Remember to get a fresh loaf of dense, chewy, dark bread.

… a pair of velvet socks, a fuzzy blanket, maybe turn on the radio to break the silence, get cozy, it’s time to start using the word “hygge” again (not that I ever stopped).

Start with ROOTS.

Po-TAH-toes,Β  po-TAY-toes, carrots, celery, radishes, onions…

Anything goes.

Add mushrooms, garlic, parsley, broccoli or cauliflower.

It’s a brilliant way to use up whatever is left in your pantry and a great excuse to Netflix and Chill.

Or just Netflix if you suffer from anxiety and refuse to chill. The soup helps though.

Vegan Stew

  • 1 cup potatoes (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup carrots (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup onions (chopped)
  • 1 cup broccoli (florets)
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower (florets)
  • 1/2 cup red peppers (sliced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and saute all the chopped ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Add 4 cups of hot water and allow to simmer until the broth thickens and all the veggies are tender.


As simple and frugal as it gets, yet so hearty and warming.

Sincerely uncomplicated, as life should be.

Β  Enjoy…

Until the next one,

    Absolutely! Fall means digging the slow cooker out of the cupboard and filling it with all the fixings for various soups and stews! I just made a cheesy chicken and spinach noodle soup last week. I think this weekend’s soup will be tomato soup with sausage and green beans. Beef stew is another favorite.

      Tomato soup is my absolute fave! Reminds me of England..
