2 large yellow onions, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 Tbs oil
2 Tbs tomato paste
2 tsp paprika, sweet
1 tsp paprika spicy or smoked, depending on preference (chipotle works as well)
1 Tbs marjoram – dried or fresh
1 Tbs caraway seeds (use cumin for a slightly different taste)
1 tsp salt
2 dried bay leaves
4 tsp vegetable stock paste
About 4 large diced potatoes (you should have about twice as many potatoes as onions), I usually use Yukon.
3-4 cups of water
Optional: vegan sausage, parsley for garnish, vegan sour cream
Slowly heat the oil in a large pot and slowly saute the onions and garlic for about 10 minutes till they start to soften and take some color.
Add the tomato paste and the spices and toast for about a minute, then add the potatoes, stock paste and water and let come to a boil, then turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. If using, cut the vegan sausage in bite size pieces and heat up in the stew.
Top with parsley and sour cream, if using.
Adjust seasonings and serve hot.
