Vegetarian Irish Farm Stew
Here’s a super easy crock pot ‘Irish’ stew chock full of root vegetables! Hearty and satisfying, yet all vegan so none of the saturated fat!

1 lb of soy based ground ‘hamburger’ like Yves Veggie Cuisine
2 quarts water or veggie broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red lentils or split peas
1/2 cup barley
2 bay leaves
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 carrots, thinly sliced
1 turnip, thinly sliced
1 parsnip, thinly sliced
1/2 head green cabbage
3 lbs potatoes
onion powder (dash)
cayenne (dash)
sea salt and pepper, to taste

irish stew

Wash, peel and chop all vegetables except potatoes and cabbage (save these for later).
Wash barley. Put everything into the crock pot and cover with water or broth
Set it on high and let it simmer for at least 4 hours (5 is best).
In the hour before you want to eat, parboil sliced russet potatoes. Drain and chop into chunks and add to crock pot.

Add cabbage to crock pot.

The cabbage will be cooked but have a nice texture. The potatoes will also cook through, but not be mushy.
