Summer Stew from Vegan yack Attack: On the Go!
By Jackie SobonPublished 06/18/2018
Even if you don’t have your own garden, you have probably known someone that was inundated with tomatoes and zucchini once summer came around. This stew uses much of the produce that summer has to offer, such as zucchini, green beans, tomatoes, and corn, and it does so quickly and deliciously! I love serving this with basket of toasted, crusty bread on the table.
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) sunflower oil
- 1 cup (140 g) diced onion
- 2 cups (280 g) chopped zucchini
- 4 ounces (120 g) green beans
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 cups (500 g) chopped tomatoes
- 1½ cups (315 g) cooked corn kernels
- 2 cans (30 ounces, or 850 g) white beans, plus liquid
- 1 cup (235 ml) low-sodium vegetable broth
- 1 teaspoon dried basil, or more to taste
- ½ teaspoon dried parsley, or more to taste
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or more to taste
- Pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)
- 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- Warm the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions, zucchini, and green beans to the pot, sautéing for 5 minutes or until the onions are mostly translucent.
- Next, stir the garlic, tomatoes, and corn into the vegetables, sautéing for 3 more minutes.
- Add the white beans plus liquid, vegetable broth, basil, parsley, black pepper, and optional red pepper to the pot. Simmer covered over medium-low heat for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Taste the stew and season with salt, plus more herbs if you prefer. Serve hot.
