Hearty Stout and Mixed Vegetable Stew [Vegan]

If you enjoy recipes like this, we highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App, it's available for both Android and iPhone and has free and paid versions. The app is loaded with thousands of allergy-friendly & vegan recipes/cooking tips, has hundreds of search filters and features like bookmarking, meal plans and more! The app shows you how having diet/health/food preferences can be full of delicious abundance rather than restrictions!

The base of the stew uses lots of onions, some garlic, rosemary and thyme thrown in for good measure. The vegetables are then added in and we have a wonderful deep sauce that thickens and simmers the vegetables into soft and tender perfection, in short just what winter is made for.

Hearty Stout and Mixed Vegetable Stew [Vegan]





Cook Time



  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups of chopped white onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered cumin
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped thyme
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes, cut into eights
  • 1 sweet potato, cubed
  • 2 medium-sized carrots, peeled and cut to match the potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups good quality vegan stout
  • 1 cup Cremini or White Button mushrooms, halved
  • 1 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • Chives ,to garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pot such as a Dutch oven. Add in the onions and cook the onions low and slow until they soften and begin to turn a soft share of toffee gold. This will take about 10-15 minutes and will need occasional stirring.
  2. Add in the garlic and the ginger (if using) and cook for a couple of minutes. Stir in the salt, cayenne pepper, sugar, cumin, rosemary, and thyme and mix well.
  3. Add in the potatoes, sweet potatoes and the carrots and add in the stout with 1 cup of water. Bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for about 1 1/2 hours. Remove the cover and check, the vegetables should be fair tender and the sauce should be an even deep brown.
  4. Add in the mushrooms and cranberries and cook the stew on medium heat for 10 minutes to let the sauce thicken.
  5. Cool slightly and serve garnished with chives.

lol ok for any Dark gluten free beer. Dark beers have roasted malts, which give the color and flavor.
