Fate Irish Stew uses freely allowed vegetables to make a lovely, warming stew.

You can change the types of vegetables in this recipe, but this combination works extremely well. The recipe makes about 2’/2litres, and it freezes well.


  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 300g onion
  • 300g carrot
  • 300gparsnip
  • 300g swede
  • 300g mushrooms
  • 300g celery
  • 1 x 400g tin tomatoes
  • 400mls water
  • 3 suitable vegetable stock cubes
  • few drops suitable gravy browning
  • pepper to season


  1. Chop the onion finely. Chop all the other vegetables into medium sized even pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan, and when it is hot, add the onion, carrot, parsnip, swede, mushrooms and celery.
  3. Cook on a high heat for about 10 mins until the vegetables are beginning to soften and turn lightly brown.
  4. Add the tin of tomatoes, water, stock cubes, and a little gravy browning to give the stew a rich colour. Stir well and break the tomatoes up a little with the back of the spoon.
  5. Season with pepper (you will probably not have to add any salt as the stock cubes can be salty enough)
  6. Put a lid on the pan and bring it to the boil, then simmer gently for about 15-20 mins until the vegetables are cooked but not too soft.
  7. Take about 5OOmls of the stew, (vegetables and gravy) and liquidise until smooth, then put back into the pan with the rest of the stew. This will give the stew a richer texture Bring back to the boil and serve with warm Fate bread or Fate Herb Crackers.

You can change the types of vegetables in this recipe, but this combination works extremely well and it is freely allowed in a low protein diet.

Serve it hot with warm Fate Herb Crackers, or Fate bread.
