Homemade soups and stews are the best way to balance macronutrients, (protein, carbs, fats), because everything is contained in one pot. You can also make this stew ahead and freeze for up to two months.

  • 10 oz seitan
  • 1 c yellow onion
  • 1 c celery
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 2 c vegetarian no-chicken broth
  • 1 c frozen mixed vegetables
  • 6 oz frozen potato gnocchi
  • ½ tbsp vegan butter
  • ½ c arugula
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Prep and chop the vegetables and dice the seitan into 1-inch cubes.
  • Sauté the seitan with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper for 4 minutes. Then add in the onions, celery, garlic and thyme and sauté for another 5 minutes until the vegetables are tender. At the end, add in the butter to melt, then the flour and cook for 1 minute.
  • Next, add in the broth and stir to allow the flour to incorporate and bring to a boil. Cover and lower to a simmer for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, stir in the mixed vegetables and the gnocchi and simmer for 5 minutes, or until gnocchi is cooked through. Add some water, if needed, to thin out the stew to desired consistency.
  • When ready to eat, serve in bowls with a sprinkle of thyme, salt, pepper, and a topping of fresh arugula.
