This vegan Irish Stew reminds me of being a kid!  My mom always made hearty soups and stews this time of year.  The savory flavor of this soup is amazing and will warm you to the bones!  



  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 cups 1/2-inch pieces peeled carrots and/or parsnips (3 to 4 carrots or parsnips)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound whole crimini mushrooms, diced
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 16 oz Guinness stout
  • 4 cups Edward & Sons Not-Beef Natural Bouillon Stock (or use vegetable stock)
  • 3 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 Tbs vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 Tbs corn starch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 Tbs water (to make a thickening slurry)
  • fresh parsley for garnish


  • Dice onions and add to a Dutch Oven. Soften onions in a few tablespoons of water.
  • Add chopped celery, carrots/parsnips – saute for 6-7 minutes or until soft. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.  About 30 seconds. 
  • Clean mushrooms and medium dice, add mushrooms to the pot and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until they begin to soften. Stir in tomato paste and add the stout. Stir well and simmer 1-2 minutes. Add stock and potatoes. Add Worchestershire sauce and seasonings, bring to a  boil. Reduce heat and cover.  Simmer 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked through. Mix corn starch and water.  Bring stew to a strong simmer and stir the slurry into the stew to thicken.  Stir well. Garnish with fresh parsley and peas, if desired.
