Chinese Stew

Chinese Stew, a great dish for any occasion – healthy, quick and vegan in just one pot!

The Chinese stew is a recipe from my grandma that I haven’t made for far too long. Now the recipe is here on the blog so you can get a taste of a perfect recipe from my grandma 🙂

The dish always reminds me of the time my grandmother stayed at our home every weekend. We enjoyed a great meal from her every Sunday and one of these dishes is the Chinese stew. Since it is no longer possible for her to cook for the whole family, the stew has only been a very rare guest on our kitchen table. Since I ran out of ideas for dishes I could have for lunch during the times of “social distancing”, I searched through my mother’s handwritten cookbook and accidentally came across this stew.

Your vegan one-pot dish

I don’t know about you, but I love simple recipes that you can cook in one pot. This Chinese stew contains a lot of different vegetables, is seasoned with a little bit of curry and refined with soy sauce. You can serve it with rice or glass noodles.

Which kinds of vegetables are good to go into the pot?

If you’ve been around The Berry Cat a few times, you may know that we’re not that strict with our recipes. If you don’t like some of the ingredients, replacing them is no problem at all. What ingredients are in the stew and what you can replace or add is listed here.

  • Button Mushrooms: here you can also take other kinds mushrooms if you don’t like button mushrooms
  • Spring onions: you can also use leeks or normal onions here
  • Cucumbers, peppers and apples: I think that pineapples or even raisins would go very well with the stew
