vegan stew with rice, sweet potato and mushrooms

Easy vegan stew with rice, sweet potato and creamy mushrooms. Perfect autumn recipe for a satisfying meatless feast.

This rice and sweet potato stew are a winner for sure. I’ve made this recipe so many times – lately yesterday. So finally I wanted to share this updated version with you. I love the texture and flavor of all the combined vegetables in this vegan stew.. But I’ve seen versions using all sorts of different greens and vegetables, so feel free to substitute with kale, spinach, cabbage, or whatever hearty greens you prefer.

Make a big bowl of this for meal prep or save for later. This recipe holds up really well both in the refrigerator or freezer. I like to pack up my stews with rice and everything.. Then refrigerate for a few days or freeze for longer term storage.

This recipe is full of warming spices like: Cumin, paprika and garlic, salt and pepper which simmer in a delicious rice infused tomato sauce with rice.

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Drizzle with salt and pepper
  • Stew:
  • 2 tablespoon oil

  • Creamy mushrooms:
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4 x medium brown mushrooms

In the oven: Pre-heat the oven at 200c. Finely chop the sweet potato and carrots in smaller pieces. Add on a baking tray with baking paper. Mix the vegetables with oil, salt, pepper and paprika. Bake in 12-15 min.


Stew: Place the pressed garlic and onion into a large saucepan along with olive oil. Allow this to heat until it’s bubbling, then pour in the tins of tomatoes, lemon juice, cumin and paprika.

vegan stew with rice, sweet potato and mushrooms

Stews for all seasons:

Grey weather and autumn really calls for big batches of this recipe. In the colder months I try to use all the seasonal vegetables available (I’m experimenting this recipe with pumpkin as well!) This one is made with sweet potatoes, carrots, rice and creamy mushrooms on top. The mushrooms gives such a delicious touch for the final stew. So warming and hearty, perfect for chilly autumn evenings. Curry, chili or garam masala would work perfectly too if you want more spiciness. And another good thing about simmer dishes that your house are just bursting with flavour. It’s close to be a food week wonder too. You can make a big batch one night to last you the next few days or weeks. Just keep a few portions in the fridge or freezer.

What else to serve with this vegan stew?

A few starters can turn this into a good meatless feast. Think salad like a fattoush or a simple Mediterranean salad. Homemade crispy flatbreads are also a winner to dip in the stew, or else try out to add some of these vegan cauliflower hot wings into the stew! Enjoy.
