  • 475 milliliters Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Yellow Onion medium, diced
  • 2 Carrot medium, diced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 20 Cremini Mushrooms sliced
  • 800 milligrams Thyme
  • 16 grams Arrowroot Powder
  • 59 milliliters Water
  • 15 milliliters Apple Cider Vinegar


  • In a large pot, heat a large splash of vegetable broth over medium heat. Cook the onion, carrot, and garlic for about five to seven minutes, or until the onions are soft. Add additional broth if it begins to stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Stir in the mushrooms and thyme. Cook for another five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the arrowroot powder and water in a small bowl to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the pot and stir until the vegetables are well coated.
  • Add the remaining broth and apple cider vinegar. Lower the heat to a simmer, close the lid and cook for 15 minutes. If needed, add salt to taste or more arrowroot powder for a thicker stew. Divide into bowls and enjoy!


Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to five days. Freeze if longer.
