Greek Beefless Stew
Source: Linda McCartney's Home Cooking
Author: Linda McCartney
Servings: 6-8
Category/Type: Vegetarian/Vegan*
Prep Time: About 60 minutes

1 - 2 tbsps vegetable oil
6 vegetable burgers, cubed
12 small onions or 4 medium onions, chopped
2 tbsps tomato paste
2 cups vegetable stock (or water)
4 carrots, chopped
2 medium potatoes, chopped
1 tsp ground cinnamon
salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan, brown the burger chunks for about 5 minutes, then place them in a deep stew pot or saucepan. Arrange the onions on top.

  2. Add the tomato paste to the remaining hot fat in the frying pan and stir well. Gradually add the vegetable stock, stir well and bring this mixture to a boil.

  3. Pour the sauce over the onions and burger chunks, add the carrots, potatoes, cinnamon, salt and pepper and stir well. Add a little more liquid, if necessary.

  4. Cover the pot and cook for 40-45 minutes over low heat. Serve immediately in bowls.
  5. Have plenty of fresh bread on hand.

    Notes: *Vegan-style veggie burgers.

    I use oil (and less of it) rather than 4 tbsps butter or margarine as the original recipe calls for...it saves animal by-product, calories and fat grams.
