Leek Mushroom Potato Stew
vegan, makes about 12 cups

6 cups vegetable broth
1 cup water
2 Tbsp safflower oil (or EVOO)
1 cup curly pasta
1 1/2 cups diced potatoes, purple/red/white minis
1 large portobella mushroom, diced
1 cup shiitake mushrooms, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/2 -1 cup nutritional yeast (thickens and gives a golden color, savory flavor – I like a lot!)
1/2 tsp fine black pepper
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
4 fresh California garlic cloves, thinly sliced
a few dashes cayenne
1 Field Roast Spicy Chipotle vegan sausage, sliced
1 1/4 cups frozen (or fresh) leeks
1 Tbsp Italian Dried Herb blend
1 bay leaf

Directions:

1. Add the oil to a large soup pot. Turn heat to medium. When oil is hot, add in the onions and mushrooms. Saute for about 3 minutes.
2. Add in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir for about 3 minutes, then reduce heat to low (but not all the way low) and allow soup to simmer uncovered for another 5 minutes.
3. Cover soup with lid – a small vent is a good idea. Reduce heat to lowest setting and allow to simmer for at least 45 minutes. This will allow the flavors to mature. If you want a thinner stew, add in more water or veggie broth halfway through simmer process. Add more nutritional yeast to thicken stew and create an extra savory/cheezy flavor.
4. Right before serving, turn heat to high and bring soup to a slow boil. (Remove bay leaf) Serve soup and store leftovers in fridge.
