Vegetable stew with cabbage, turnip, carrots and parsnip

Veggie stew2

A French-inspired recipe with a stew made with cabbage, turnip, carrots, and parsnip. This dish is pretty popular in France, it is something that we have during summer when I was a kid. Usually, it is served with a large piece of meat but since I turned vegetarian/flexitarian, I am trying to find some alternative. I am quite pleased with my last test of vegan red kidney “meat” ball.

This stew recipe is pretty quick to make as it is done in a pressure cooker and it gets the value added to eat various type of vegetables. That is really wintery and it feels really good to eat it when it is raining, snowing…

How to make a Vegetable stew with cabbage, turnip, carrots, and parsnip?

  • Wash all the vegetables carefully
  • In order to help to digest the cabbage, the advice is to pre-cook it with one teaspoon of baking soda. For doing that, put the washed cabbage in a large pan, add the boiling water along with the baking soda and let it cook at medium heat for 15 minutes. Then drain carefully the cabbage
  • Peel the carrots, turnip, and parsnip and put them in square pieces
  • Peel and chop the onion
  • In a pressure cooker, warm up the olive oil then add the onion and stir it for a couple of minutes
  • Then add the sliced carrots along with boiling water (around 0.5l), vegetable stock and pepper, then close the pressure cooker, cook it for 5 minutes

! the vegetables always need to be covered by water. The level of water needs to be checked each time you add some vegetables as the level will go down during the cooking

  • Then open the cooker and add the turnip and the parsnip, close it and cook it for 15 minutes
  • Open again the cooker and add the pre-cooked cabbage and let it cook for an extra 5 minutes
  • Then with a skimmer remove the cooked vegetables and serve them along with vegan red kidney balls
