READY IN: 40mins




  • Heat the oil in pan and add onion; fry for 5-10 minutes until translucent. Add garlic and fry for two minutes. Add celery; sweat for five minutes with lid on adding more oil or a little water.
  • Add the carrots and do the same for five minutes, then the parsnips, then the peppers then the mushrooms and then courgettes. Basically hard veggies first, soft veggies after with 5 minutes in between them to let flavours develop.

  • Continue to simmer until reduced to desired consistency.
  • Serve sprinkled with vegan cheese, vegan yogurt (alpro plain), guacamole and on nachos.
  • Eat like a pig and declare that this is so good even my meat eating husband loves this.
