Irish Lager Stew [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 8 ounces button or shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium leek, white part only, diced (1 cup)
  • 3 small red potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes (1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced (2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup barley
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, tied in bundle, plus 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup lager beer (you can check if it’s vegan online)
  • 1 tablespoon white miso (mixed in a small bowl with a tablespoon of water to make a paste)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large pot over medium heat. Add mushrooms and garlic; sauté eight minutes, or until mushrooms are browned.
  2. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pot. Add leek, and cook five minutes. Add potatoes, carrots, and tomato paste. Cook two minutes. Add tomatoes, broth, barley, cabbage and thyme sprigs; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
