Vegetable stew (vegan)

Very low-fat and perfectly vegan vegetable stew made by my mom. She added all the young veggies but you can use any fresh/frozen you have in stock. Those tiny carrots I collected in the garden, they were so charming:) Enjoy!:)


  • 3 small onions, chopped fine
  • garlic cloves, chopped fine
  • 1 large courgette/zucchini
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped /handful of tiny young carrots
  • 2 cups fresh peas
  • 300 g potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 to 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups vegetable broth/water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 cardamom pods, crushed or kept whole (optional)


Heat the olive oil in a heavy pan. Stir in chopped onion, garlic, potato and courgette/zucchini and sauté about 4-5 minutes over medium heat until the onion is translucent.

Transfer the veggies to the pot. Add carrots, peas, salt, pepper, paprika, cardamom. Pour in vegetable broth/water to cover the veggies. Turn the heat up to boil. Once it’s boiling, turn down the heat to low. Sauté until the veggies are nice and soft, about 15-20 minutes. Garnish with basil and sesame. Serve!
