This Vegan Irish Stew is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
This Vegan Irish Stew is one of my new favorite recipes. In fact, I’ve made this stew 4 times in the past two weeks! Hearty root vegetables are cooked in a rich stout based stock. Perfect for a cozy winter meal or celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!
Traditional Irish Stew is made with lamb and stout beer. Instead of using meat, a blend of hearty root vegetables is used. Not all stout beers are vegan. Be sure to check Barnivore to ensure that the stout beer is vegan.
The stout has a really nice depth of flavor to the stew. The alcohol cooks out and you are left with a flavorful stew. I’m not a stout beer fan at all, but I love how the stout adds an earthiness to the stew.
To create a thick and hearty stew, a little bit of flour is used. The flour helps to create a thick stew.
This Vegan Irish Stew is perfect for making on St. Patrick’s Day or anytime you are craving a cozy winter stew! This stew will definitely stick to your ribs!
