Hearty Root Vegetable Tempeh Stew

In the chillier months, it is always nice to have something comforting to come home to for dinner.  I like to make a big batch of soup or stew on the weekend, freeze some and enjoy it during the week. The recipe I am sharing with you today is just that.  A root vegetable stew which is satisfying as well as healthy.  It is thick and delicious, yet gluten free and vegan.  It is packed with lots of vitamins with all of the vegetables, so it is the perfect dish to keep you healthy and warm this winter.

In a large pot, combine the olive oil, onions, and tempeh, and heat over medium.  Stir often and cook until the tempeh browns slightly and the onion is soft about 5-7 minutes. Then add the carrots and garlic and cook until the garlic is fragrant about a minute.  Add the remaining veggies, stock, braggs, sea salt, thyme, rosemary, and nutritional yeast and bring to a simmer.  Simmer for about 15 minutes until the veggies are tender, then add the miso and cornstarch mixture.  Cook until thickened, a few minutes, then remove from heat and serve!
