Vegetarian Irish Stew

Vegetarian Irish Stew (Recipe from Melissa Breyer of Care2)

I modified this recipe to use only the ingredients that I had on hand. If you want to try a greater variety of root veggies, click on this link for the original recipe.


2 Tablespoons olive oil

2 medium onions, diced

1 cup (or more) carrots, sliced

2 cups (or more) potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

1 cup (or more) celery, diced

4 cups vegetable stock

2 cups stout beer

1 cup pearl barley, rinsed

A few sprigs fresh rosemary, or ½ teaspoon dried rosemary

Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. In a large soup pot, sauté onions in the oil until translucent. Add the remaining vegetables and cook for a few minutes, stirring to coat the vegetables with oil.
  2. Add broth, stout, and barley to pot. Add the rosemary. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer for an hour, or until vegetables are tender and stew has thickened, adding water if necessary.
  3. Season with salt and pepper, and serve with bread.
