Winter Warming Vegetable Stew - Comments


Name: Wayne Goodman 23rd September 2009
i am just in the middle of cooking this at the moment and it smalls fantastic.i do have a question though if i wanted to thicken this up how would i go about this ? thanks
E2BN Team: You can thicken at the end with a little cornflour in water but stir well and cook through to avoid a floury taste. The beans will break down and thicken the soup a little anyway.

Just add arrow root or cornflour.

I`m going to try this tomorrow, i`ve done a similar dish before. To thicken it up, maybe use some gravy granules as well as stock and allow to simmer with no lid on, that should do it :)

Worcester sauce isn't vegetarian.
E2BN Team: Please see the notes, try leaving the sauce out or substitute marmite.

That's why they put "For a vegetarian version just leave out the worcester sauce" :-)

I'm not a vegetation but I find something odd about a recipe that should be vegetarian not being so. The answer of course is to use Henderson's Yorkshire Relish which is vegetarian.
Name: Nicky 30th November 2009
It is really delicious without the Worcestershire sauce and you can always stir in a large teaspoon of Marmite for extra flavour.
Name: Alana 9th January 2010
sounds really nice cant wait to try it
Name: Andrew 31st March 2010
the recipe isn't meant to be specifically vegetarian just because the main ingredients are vegetables.

E2BN Team: If you use marmite in place of Worcester Sauce then you have a vegetarian dish or just omit the sauce altogether.

This was great! I added tripe to it for an extra kick!

Fish free Worcestershire sauce is available in decent health food shops so this recipe is vegetarian.

Brilliant sounding recipe. Soon I'm going out for the ingredients. I've never heard of adzuki beans so plan to substitute an Italian bean whose name I forget.
Name: Bella 16th February 2011
Just made and eaten, didn't add so many vegetables, but added some different ones in, sweet potatoes, corrugates, baby corns, asparagus and a few others... Was so tasty. Thank you for the recipe x

Name: CARWYN DAVIES 3rd September 2011
thank you!! this was very tasty! i added some balsamic vinegar, was delicious!!!
Name: Dom 9th September 2011
Made this tonight - it was delicious!! Thanks for the balsamic vinegar tip, Carwyn - used it instead of the worcestershire sauce. The baked beans add the protein and make the soup creamier than it would have been without. LOVELY!
Name: Jules 10th November 2011
I really enjoyed this. Left out the baked beans and replaced with a 5 bean mix. It was lovely
Name: Gavin 13th November 2011

Name: Beth 16th November 2011
When you say baked beans, do you mean baked beans in tomato sauce?? Yes but of course you can use any tinned beans you particularly like. The Cookit Team

You can buy vegetarian worcester sauce in the free from section in Asda and other major supermarkets. Its called life free from.
Name: Al Hunt 2nd January 2012
rI used all old pototoes for this and it came out a bit weird. I suggest you use fresh for best results. Otherwise top notch recipe.

Absolutely amazing recipe. Who would have thought baked beans would taste so good in a stew!!
Name: Emma 20th March 2012
I'm making this right now for me and my boyfriend. Leaving out the worcester sauce as he's vegetarian, and the baked beans, because I just can't bring myself to put them in, otherwise it smells gorgeous. I am putting some brown sauce in though...
Name: Gemma Caswell 6th May 2012
Absolutely gorgeous. even my meat eating husband went back for more! I'm cooking it again for 8 tomorrow!
Name: Arif 6th July 2012
Delicious and very filling! I was really apprehensive about putting baked bean in a stew but it really brought everything together.
Name: ROGER 10th July 2012
Name: Jo 29th October 2012
I was unsure about the baked beans but it tasted really good! I also made some dumplings out of vegetable suet and added them to the stew and was a bit heavier on the spice measurements, perfect for winter. I have made it twice now and everyone loved it! :)
Name: Thelma 2nd December 2013
This is fab....substituted Marmite for Worcester sauce as vegetarian. Froze some and had for lunch today better that the first time!
