Saint Patrick's Day is fast approaching! And what better way to celebrate with this Vegan Irish stew. A super tasty and substantial meal.
This stew is traditionally made with lamb meat, here in the vegan version we replace lamb with tofu. You will be amazed by how the tofu will taste after simmering in the broth and beer. It doesn't compare to a stew made with meat but it's just as delicious, you are not going to miss the meat, I promise!
How to add more flavor to my stew?
To add more flavor to your stew, I suggest you garnish your stew with fresh herbs when you are ready to serve it. You can add parsley, thyme, rosemary and even oregano.
What do you eat with Irish stew?
This Vegan Irish Stew is enough as is, but I like to serve it with country bread, so that you can dip the slice of bread in the sauce. You can also serve a salad as a side dish.
- If you love stew with a thick sauce, it's important to add something that will thicken the mixture. All you have to do is to sprinkling flour on the tofu before sautéing it. During cooking, this will thicken the sauce.
- Don't over cook it, after a while, the flavors and textures just tend to degrade.
Tofu: It's important to use firm or extra firm tofu in this recipe.
Vegetable Broth: You can also use 2 tbsp of white miso paste, it's also super delicious
Beer: In this recipe a use a pale beer so that the taste is more subtil, but if you are a big fan of beer you can also use a darker beer
