Ingredients: 3 tbsp olive oil, 1 onion chopped, 1 tbsp garlic minced, ½ tsp dried rosemary, 1 tsp dried thyme, ½ tsp dried oregano, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 500g chestnut mushrooms sliced, 1 courgette sliced, 3 stalks of celery chopped, 3 large carrots chopped, 40g plain flour, 400g kidney beans, 600g potatoes diced, 240ml marinara sauce https://www.splashoftaste.com/marinara-sauce/ , 130g tomato puree, 1 tbsp dark soy sauce, 240ml red wine, 480ml vegetable stock, and 2 bay leaves.
Over medium heat, add your olive oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven, and then add your chopped onions and sauté until they are translucent and softened.
Next, add in your minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and smoked paprika and stir to combine with the onions. Add your sliced mushrooms, courgette, celery, carrots and stir to combine them fully with the onions, herbs and spice, cook until the mushrooms are a little soft.
Next, add in your plain flour and stir it so the vegetables are coated in it. Then add your kidney beans, potatoes, marinara sauce, tomato puree, and dark soy sauce and stir to combine. Now, add in your red wine and vegetable stock and stir thoroughly to combine.
Finally, add in your bay leaves and bring your hearty vegetable stew to a simmer over medium-high heat and then return it to medium heat, cover it and leave it, stirring occasionally, and cook until the potatoes are soft, approximately 30 – 40 minutes, but keep checking their progress. When your veggie stew is cooked, taste it and season with salt and pepper.
