World Vegan Month: Stew and Dumplings

Filed under:

meat-free-mondayHello again!

In the news this week, it turns out that the paragons of physical prowess back in the day, the Roman gladiators, were mostly vegan!

This week’s recipe is definitely a meal of champions – even if you’ve got no battles to fight, it’ll certainly help you fight the onslaught of winter 😉

It also turns out that milk in our diet may not be quite as good for us as was previously suggested…

Mixed Vegetable & Lentil Stew with Herby Dumplings
Print Recipe
This week’s recipe is a real winter warmer, delicious stew and dumplings. It’s a true favourite of mine, and something I really look forward to cooking when the temperature drops. This recipe, like my last can be adapted depending on what vegetables you have in the house or what your favourites are. You can also add more/less beans and pulses if desired. This serves between 4/5 adults. Happy Meat Free Monday, and enjoy!

Ingredients
For the Dumplings
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to gas 4/180c/350F
  2. Prep all vegetables, peel (optional) and roughly chop into medium-large sized chunks
  3. Make up stock using boiling water and stock cubes.
  4. In a large, oven safe pan, fry off onion, garlic and herbs in a little oil for a few minutes.
  5. Add stock and vegetables to pan, cover and leave for around 10 minutes to simmer.
  6. Give it a good stir add the lentils and sweet corn and transfer to the oven and cook for a further 20 minutes.
  7. In this time make your dumplings by mixing all the dried ingredients together and addling small amounts of water, bit by bit. You want just enough to make a sticky dough, be careful not to add too much water. Remove pan from the oven and give stew a really good stir; make sure nothing is stick to the bottom. In lightly floured hands roll the dumpling mix into golf ball size portions (these will expand) and place on the top of the stew. It’s up to you if you want to cover and have soft doughy dumplings or leave the lid off for crispy brown dumplings. I like them soft personally.
  8. Put back in the oven for a further 20-30 minutes or until dumplings are cooked though.

      Good morning,
      I am writing an article about Forest Green Rovers and I would like your permission to use the Chairman’s photograph on the Wikipedia website. The Press officer at FGR is going to supply me with other images but I particularly like this more casual portrait.

      My interest in FGR has been aroused by all the innovations introduced into football. I am not football fan per se, and having survived seven decades without any particular loyalty to any team, I am now looking forward to being an avid fan and scanning the press for results.

      Perhaps i shouldn’t say so, but since I officially decided to follow FGR they haven’t won a match. Sorrry.

      All good wishes,
      Jan Toms.
