Savory Kidney Bean and Vegetable Stew
and mashed potatoes

Active: 40 Total: 40

This cozy and comforting stew, which we last featured in 2021, is full of hearty flavors and served over creamy mashed potatoes.
Smarts: The stew should be fairly thick with just enough liquid to form a flavorful 'gravy' over the mashed potatoes. However, if you find that a lot of liquid cooks off while it simmers, you can always add more stock (or water) as needed.

Make

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery with some salt and saute until light golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and miso. Saute until miso is heated through and garlic is fragrant, ~2 minutes.

  2. Add turnips, soup base, stock, and beans. Cover with a lid. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to maintain a low simmer. Simmer, covered, until turnips are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Season water generously with some salt. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil.

  4. Remove lid from potatoes and simmer until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes.

  5. Drain potatoes and let sit in a colander for ~5 minutes to allow steam to escape (this creates creamier potatoes vs. liquidy potatoes).

  6. Use a masher to mash potatoes with sour cream, butter, and some salt.

  7. Serve stew over mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
