Veggie Stew

With a little spare time in my apartment on call this weekend as the Boston area remains heart attack-free, I had an hour or so to make a veggie stew.

These are easy to make -- any vegetables will suffice. I used what I had on hand, which was an eggplant, onion, cut baby carrots, and peas. Take a large pot and heat about a quarter cup of oil. Here, I used canola. Then add the veggies, and simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Next I added the seitan, beans, and two cups of vegetable broth -- add another cup of water or broth if more liquid is needed.

Simmer the mixture for about 30-35 minutes. Then, add a quarter cup whole wheat flour, a quarter cup of tamari or soy sauce, salt, pepper, and a little turmeric or whatever spices you like. Simmer for another ten minutes.

Looks delicious... do you freeze it for later meals?

Your blog inspired me to take a pic of my fridge too.. of course, yours is much more organized than mine.

You do such a great job managing your busy work schedule and cooking healthy foods (and training). I'm just so impressed!

I discovered your blog today, and I'm quite impressed. I'm vegetarian and am always looking for great recipes, but they always seem to take so long to prepare. Yours are simple and straight forward, but also look delicious. I'm also studying medicine, so I enjoyed reading your comments about day to day life at the hospital. Your blog proved to me that contrary to what everyone is telling me, you can go into medicine and still have a life.

Hey Heather,

Sorry, I didn't get in touch this weekend. It ended up being a pretty busy few days. Glad to see you got some time to cook. The stew looks great!

I'm thinking about going raspberry picking on Satuday if they still have berries at the farm. Not sure if that is too far away if you are on call.

Drop me an email though!
