"Beef" Casserole

  • 250 g soya chunks (plain or flavoured) - put in a large bowl and cover with plenty of water, allow to soak for at least one hour
  • 2 large onions - sliced
  • 6 carrots - cubed (or mushrooms, aubergines or red peppers)
  • 6 celery sticks - sliced
  • 2 tins tomatoes or two tablespoons tomato puree
  • 3 or 4 sherry glasses of good dry sherry
  • 1 flat tablespoon Marmite, or 1-2 veggie stock cubes
  • 2-3 crushed garlic cloves
  • 2 chillies
  • a dash of soya sauce and Clearspring Umeboshi plum puree or sauce (never use much plum sauce as it is very tasty but very salty)
  • 3-4 tablespoons sunflower oil


  1. Saute (fry gently) onions, carrots, celery and garlic for about 15 minutes in the oil.
  2. Add the sherry and cook for a few minutes to 'burn' off the alcohol.
  3. Add the tinned tomatoes or tomato puree, Marmite or stock cubes and add the chillies and plum sauce.
  4. Add soya chunks and sufficient water to cover the stew.
  5. Simmer on stove for approximately one hour.
