  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a pan, then add the onion and sauté for approximately 2-4 minutes, stirring frequently until fragrant
  2. Incorporate carrots, potatoes, celery, mushrooms, garlic, and all the herbs and spices. Sauté for an additional minute, then introduce vegetable broth.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Allow it to cook for about 5 minutes, followed by adding the frozen peas. Continue cooking for an additional 15 minutes or until the vegetables and peas reach a desired level of softness.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch with vegan heavy cream or canned coconut milk.
  5. Pour the creamy mixture into the stew, and also incorporate white wine (or opt for more broth or plant-based milk for a creamier texture). Let the soup simmer for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  6. Taste the stew and adjust seasonings as needed. Add more salt, pepper, or spices to suit your preferences. For a creamier consistency, use an immersion blender to blend half of the soup.
  7. Optional: Garnish with fresh herbs and savor the delightful flavors! Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, and the stew is freezer-friendly.

Incorporated 1 tablespoon each of fresh herbs—thyme, rosemary, and oregano. Adjust to taste or substitute with dried herbs if preferred.

The stew/soup thickens upon cooling. To restore its consistency, reheat with a generous splash of either vegetable broth or plant-based milk. When utilizing canned peas, incorporate them at a later stage in the cooking process so they do not overcook..
