  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C.
  2. While oven heats, heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then beef and saute until browned on the outside (don’t worry if it isn’t cooked through), 5 to 6 minutes. Set aside and return pan to heat.
  3. To heated pan add onions and carrots. Saute until soft, 2 to 3 minutes, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Add garlic (portion for stew), paprika and Italian seasoning and saute for 1 minute more.
  4. Add beef back to pan with parsnips, crushed tomatoes, stock and aminos. Bring to a simmer. Simmer, covered, until beef is tender, ~45 minutes.
  5. While soup simmers, toss broccoli and garlic (portion for broccoli) with olive oil and salt. Spread out on a sheet pan. Roast, shaking pan halfway through cooking, until broccoli is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Return to stew and season with some salt and pepper.
  7. Squeeze lemon juice over broccoli.
  8. Top stew with green onions. Serve with broccoli on the side. Enjoy!
