Delicious mushroom goodness and plant-based ingredients shine in this healthy, oil-free Tuscan Mushroom Stew that is oh-so-comforting.



Base Ingredients:

  • 1 medium yellow onion, fine dice
  • 8 oz. to 10 oz. mushrooms, sliced *
  • 1 Tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari *
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ cup white wine *
  • ½ cup low-sodium vegetable broth *
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 – [ 28 oz. can ] petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 – [ 15.5 oz. can ] Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed * 

Spice/Herb Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 Tablespoons dried minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ¾ teaspoon dried crushed thyme leaves *
  • Pinch dried ground rosemary *
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon sea salt (+/-) *
  • Pinch black pepper (+/-) *

Other Ingredients:

  • 2 to 3 cups chopped baby kale *

Optional Ingredients:


  1. Place the Spice/Herb Ingredients in a small bowl, mix well, set aside.
  2. If including pasta, cook pasta according to package directions, rinse with cold water to remove excess starches, set aside until Step 7.
  3. In a large ceramic/enamel-lined pot or similar stock pot, add the diced onions, sauté over medium-high heat until the veggies begin to soften, approximately 7 to 9 minutes, stirring periodically to prevent burning. Add a tablespoon or so of water if they start to stick and/or to prevent burning.
  4. Add the sliced mushrooms and tamari, sauté over medium heat to reduce, approximately 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Add the minced garlic, sauté for one minute, stirring constantly.
  6. Increase the heat, add the white wine, simmer for several minutes, then add all the remaining Base Ingredients and Spice/Herb Mix, stir well to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, then immediately lower to a low-boiling simmer.  Simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Add the chopped baby kale (and cooked pasta) stir well to combine. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, then remove from the stove.
  8. Allow to sit for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to marry. Serve and enjoy.
