Seitan Portabello Autumn Stew

By Dani Taylor




Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 (8 oz.) package seitan, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 large onion, quartered and thickly sliced

  • 1 large portobello mushroom, cleaned, stem removed and diced

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 medium carrot, peeled, sliced, ½ inch thick

  • 1 cup red wine

  • 1 tsp dried rosemary

  • 1 tsp dried thyme

  • 1 tsp sweet paprika

  • Fresh black pepper

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 3 cups vegetable broth

  • 1 ½ lbs potatoes (any type), peeled, cut in 1 ½ inch chunks

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup water

  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste

Instructions

  1. Preheat a large pot over medium-high heat.

  2. Sauté onions, mushrooms, and a pinch of salt in the olive oil until translucent, 4 to 7 minutes. Add garlic, for about a minute, until fragrant.

  3. Add carrots, wine, rosemary (crushed in your fingers), thyme (crushed in your fingers), paprika, fresh black pepper, and salt, and bring to a boil. The liquid should reduce in about 3 minutes.

  4. Add vegetable broth, cover, and bring to a boil.

  5. When it is boiling, add the potatoes, lower heat and bring to a simmer. Let the potatoes cook just until fork-tender, about 15 minutes.

  6. In a measuring cup, mix the flour into the water with a fork until no lumps are left. Slowly add the broth/flour to the pot, mixing well. Mix in the tomato paste. Let thicken for 5 minutes or so.

  7. Add the seitan and continue to cook. In about 5 more minutes it should be perfectly thick but still smooth.
