This vegan riff on Irish stew is great warming, nutritious comfort food and can be easily adapted depending on what’s in season. Stock flavoured with tamari, nutritional yeast, bay leaves and lots of thyme (fresh or dried), along with potatoes, onions and garlic form the base (I add leeks and celery too if I have them). I like to include vegan sausages (with a robust texture that won’t disintegrate in the pot) and lentils (tinned, or dried and rehydrated by pre-cooking).

Whether you’ve already dipped your toes in the waters of vegan life or want to give it a go, this is a great resource. It may be that you want to try the entire month as a vegan or perhaps try a more gradual approach, eg Vegan Monday (or Tuesday or…) It’s completely flexible.
