Cozy Vegan Stew is super flavorful and so easy to make in one pot! It’s loaded with hearty vegetables, tender red potatoes and is simmered in a rich tomato broth. This incredible, healthy, meatless stew recipe makes a wonderful plant-based dinner the whole family will love. Serve with crusty bread for the perfect meal!


  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 10 oz of baby bella mushrooms, diced (I quartered mine)
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 sticks of celery, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 3/4 cup of dried red wine
  • 2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • 3 cups of diced red potatoes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 4 cups of veggie stock/ broth


  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add in the onion and shallot and sauté for 5 minutes.
  2. Add in the mushrooms, carrots, celery, and garlic. Cook for 5 additional minutes, stirring often. Mix in the thyme, rosemary, pepper, and flour. Cook 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the wine and scrape the bottom of the pot to deglaze. Add in the balsamic vinegar, potatoes, bay leaf, tomato paste, and broth. 
  4. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper and ENJOY!


  • Storage. Once completely cool, store leftovers in an airtight storage container. It keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 4 to 5 days.
  • Reheating. Rewarm leftovers in a large pot on the stovetop over medium-low heat, adding a bit more broth or water, as needed. You can also reheat this stew in the microwave until hot.
  • Freezing. Place leftovers in an airtight freezer-safe storage container or bag, and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Be sure to label the stew with the date, so you know when it went into the freezer. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
