Stew Me Up, Baby 


It’s just one of those days that I throw everything in a pot to make something special.

Today was perfect for a stew: I had random ingredients (almost about to expire) lying around. So instead of throwing these items out, I decided to make what I make best: a stew.

Listen guys, a stew is pretty easy to make. You just need to make sure your base tastes delicious, and everything else will be alright. For the base, I used about 1 cup of marinara sauce I had lying around. It worked out just fine. By the way, if you’re curious, I typically use a tomato-based sauces for all of my soups and stews.

All you need is a bunch of vegetables! This recipe is good for 2-3 people. (Or in my case, JUST FOR ME!!!)


Things I Used:

  • Carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 idaho potato, chopped in cubes
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 link Field Roast’s Vegan Chipotle sausage
  • 1 cup cooked/Instant rice
  • A bunch of garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 packet of sazon
  • marinara sauce
  • Sriracha
  • parsley flakes
  • Oil

How I Pretty Much Made It: 

  1. In a pan over medium heat, pour 2 tablespoons of oil.
  2. Add the garlic, onion, and bell pepper and let is cook for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the potatoes, carrots, sausage, and marinara sauce. Cook for 4 minutes.
  4. Add enough water to cover vegetables (more or less, whatever you want).
  5. Bring the stew to boil then lower to a simmer.
  6. Add the sazon, parsley flakes, sirarcha, and garlic powder. Mix.
  7. Allow your stew to cook for about 30 minutes or until all vegetables are tender.
  8. Add the rice and cook for another  4 minutes.
  9. Taste to see if it’s all good. Serve.
