Frequently Asked Questions:
CAN I MAKE THIS VEGAN BEEFLESS STEW TOP 8 ALLERGEN FREE?
Soy sauce is the only ingredient that we are concerned with in this recipe. Depending on the allergies you have, you can replace the soy sauce with gluten-free tamari, coconut aminos or a Top 8 no soy sauce (click links to see each).
Otherwise this recipe is completely Top 8 Allergen Free.
CAN I PREP THIS VEGAN BEEFLESS STEW IDEA AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes! You can make the recipe from start to finish and then store in the fridge in an air tight container after cooling, for up to 7 days, heating up when ready to cook.
CAN I FREEZE THIS VEGAN BEEFLESS STEW?
Yes! Let cool complete and place in a freezer safe bag or container. Use within 3 months.
CAN I MAKE THIS BEEFLESS VEGAN STEW ON THE STOVE?
Maybe you don’t have a crockpot or you want to make this vegan beefless stew recipe in a shorter amount of time.
While we highly recommend slow cooking to allow the flavors to really develop and come together, there’s no reason you can’t make this recipe on the stove.
Start by reducing the amount of liquid by 1 cup. In a large pot or dutch oven, place all the ingredients together and cook for 30-45 minutes on low. Your potatoes and carrots should be fork tender. If you have more time, you can continue to let it cook on low for more time.
WHAT CAN I SERVE WITH VEGAN BEEFLESS STEW?
Obviously, it’s good on it’s own, but there’s just something about bread with soup that’s amazing together. Here’s a few ideas:
Also, if you are gluten free you could try something like pepitas or sunflower seeds on top for a nice addition.
