Serves: 4


  • Heat your favourite oil or cooking fat in a large casserole dish (we used coconut oil – you could also use  rapeseed oil to name a few)
  • Fry the onions for a few minutes until soft and translucent
  • Add the swede, squash, mushrooms and more seasoning to the casserole, and sweat for approximately 10 minutes… until the mushrooms are soft
  • Stir in the fresh thyme and chestnuts, and almost cover the ingredients with boiling water (if unsure best to add less, otherwise the stew will be too thin), add a little more seasoning
  • Once it comes to the boil reduce the heat, cover with a lid and gently simmer for 40-60 minutes
  • Season to taste and serve with fresh tarragon
  • Optional: upgrade with Pulsin’ Pea Protein!
