Recipe: Seasonal Summer Stew

Cookbook author (and all around amazing vegan chef and friend) Jackie Sobon’s newest book VEGAN YACK ATTACK ON THE GO! hits the stands July 3. We got a sneak peek of her book as well as a one-on-one cooking demo with her … and we’re sharing it with you.

VEGAN YACK ATTACK ON THE GO! features recipes developed for real life … and for people who aren’t necessarily blessed in the kitchen. These recipes are perfect for people who are vegan (or who just want to prepare good food!) and are frequently on the go. There’s even a section covering recipes that take under 30 minutes to prepare.

Check out the Facebook Live Vegans, Baby’s Diana Edelman did with Jackie and then scroll down to learn how to make this delicious summer stew at your house!

Even if you don’t have your own garden, you have probably known someone that was inundated with tomatoes and zucchini once summer came around. This stew uses much of the produce that summer has to offer, such as zucchini, green beans, tomatoes, and corn, and it does so quickly and deliciously! I love serving this with basket of toasted, crusty bread on the table
1 tablespoon (15 ml) sunflower oil

1 cup (140 g) diced onion

2 cups (280 g) chopped zucchini

4 ounces (120 g) green beans

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups (500 g) chopped tomatoes

1½ cups (315 g) cooked corn kernels

2 cans (30 ounces, or 850 g) white beans, plus liquid

1 cup (235 ml) low-sodium vegetable broth

1 teaspoon dried basil, or more to taste

½ teaspoon dried parsley, or more to taste

1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or more to taste

Pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)1 teaspoon salt, or to taste


Warm the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions, zucchini, and green beans to the pot, sautéing for 5 minutes or until the onions are mostly translucent. Next, stir the garlic, tomatoes, and corn into the vegetables, sautéing for 3 more minutes.

Add the white beans plus liquid, vegetable broth, basil, parsley, black pepper, and optional red pepper to the pot. Simmer covered over medium-low heat for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste the stew and season with salt, plus more herbs if you prefer. Serve hot.

Yield: 4 servings

Tip: At certain grocery stores you can buy grilled corn in the freezer section. I love thawing this out and using it in recipes like this one to add even more flavor.
