This stew became an instant favourite of my daughter- she just did not stop eating…
It is a great recipe for preparing in advance and re-heating when needed.

I used soy steaks from vantastic foods. In Germany, smaller TVP chunks are also available from Alnatura.

Variations: To give this dish more flavour, try using vegetarian worcestershire sauce instead of soy sauce, and add 1/2 a chopped and deseeded chilli and 3 tablespoons tomato puree.

Gluten- free: If you want a gluten-free meal, check that the TVP chunks or burgers you are using are are gluten-free.

Vegan: The stew is vegan if you use margarine or vegetable oil instead of butter.
