So this post kicks off my HORRIFYING vegan recipes! I don’t know about you, but after watching The Blair Witch Project when I was a teenager, camping became a little more frightening!
But this campfire style veggie, seitan stew is filled with delicious, healthy ingredients, there’s nothing scary in this dish! No eye of newt or anything of the sort, just good old fashioned veggies, seitan, quinoa, and more!
I used red potatoes in this dish, but you could easily substitute sweet potatoes if you prefer. I also added quinoa for a different texture as well as a little more protein! Feel free to mix and match your favorite herbs I used rosemary and sage, since I’m all fall right now, but I also envision a thyme and oregano mix working well too!
Do you have a favorite halloween themed movie? If so, what is your favorite?
- 1 Tbl coconut oil or olive oil
- 1 yellow onion coarsely chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 8 oz package of seitan (or make your own!), chopped
- 1 Tbl fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 Tbl fresh sage, chopped
- 1 tsp Worchester sauce (check to make sure its vegan! I like Annie's)
- 1 tsp liquid smoke
- 1 tsp pure maple syrup
- ½ cup dry white wine
- 1 lbs carrots, peeled and chopped
- 4 small red potatoes, chopped
- 2-3 cups of vegetable or mock chickn broth
- ⅓ cup dry quinoa, rinsed
- salt, to taste
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a dutch oven or heavy bottomed pan, heat oil over medium heat.
- Add in your onions and garlic and sautee until translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add in your seitan and stir, followed by your rosemary and sage. Stir until your rosemary and sage are distributed along the seitan for about 1 minute.
- Add your Worchester sauce, liquid smoke, and maple syrup to your seitan, onion mix and stir until everything is well covered and combined. Cook until the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes.
- Once your liquid has evaporated, pour your wine over your seitan and onions, and deglaze your pan, scraping the bottom of the dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot. Cook for about 1 minute.
- Add in your carrots and potatoes and stir for about 1 minute.
- Add in your 2-3 cups of broth until your ingredients are covered. Bring your broth to a boil and add in your quinoa.
- Lower the heat to a simmer and put in the oven, bake covered for about 20-25 minutes. If you don’t have a dutch oven, you can transfer your mix to a baking dish or continue to cook the ingredients on the stove until tender.
- Remove from oven and garnish with more rosemary, taste for salt, and serve with crusty bread and snob away.
