Every time the weather turns, we crave stew. The stormier it is outside, the deeper the crave, so we thought we’d gather some recipes to help you make sure you have ingredients for stew at home when the weather starts turning. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, scroll down to the bottom for a vegan-friendly option. Keep warm!
Beef and Guinness Stew
This is a traditional Irish stew, straight from the emerald island, a place that knows what it’s like to cook in rainy weather. If you don’t have Guinness available, any stout would do, but make sure to get beef suitable for stew: lean, trimmed, and cubed.
Italian Short Rib Stew
While we don’t think of comfort food as healthy or diet-appropriate, this recipe fits nicely as part of a Mediterranean Diet.
For many people, it’s hard to imagine a satisfying and comforting soup without any beef or animal products, but vegetables can be transformed into a delicious stew without much hassle. Make sure you have a variety of mushrooms and beans, and some (vegan) red wine, and you’re well on your way!
