Vegan Potato Stew

I haven’t posted a recipe in months and I’m so happy to come back with this delicious potato stew. Its hearty, rich, savory, delicious and packed with yummy ingredients.

This recipe was born from a pantry and refrigerator dive in an attempt to use up some stuff I had so it wouldn’t go bad and wow! Honestly who came up with the myth that vegan food is rabbit food and it can’t be full of flavor and satisfying? Oh, I forgot to mention this recipe is 100% vegan!
