Vegan Stew

Hooked on large pots of soup lately. This particular one I found to be very “winter comforting”.


  • Barley
  • Green lentils
  • Colored potatoes
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Cabbage
  • Onion
  • Lime
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • Red pepper flakes


  1. Add extra virgin olive oil to hot pot and proceed to adding soaked grains.
  2. Sauté and fill pot with water; half full.
  3. Add one onion and cut celery. Cover and bring up to a boil. Depending on amount of grains that you add, cooking time will vary from 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I usually add around 1 1/2 cups combined. 
  4. Let it do it’s thing for about half hour and then add cut veggies. Add cabbage until half hour before it’s done since it cooks pretty fast. 
  5. Before serving add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve hot and add pepper flakes and lime for a little extra flavor.

Stay Warm!
