This autumn pumpkin apple stew is hearty yet light - the perfect mix of fall's best produce. Vegan and Gluten-Free.
In a large pot, bring a glug of olive oil to medium-low heat. Add in the diced onions and sauté until soft, a few minutes.
Then, add in the garlic and stir until lightly fragrant, about a minute or so. Be careful not to let the garlic brown!
Add in the chopped kale and stir it up well with the garlic and onion, for about another minute or so.
Then, add in the fire-roasted tomatoes, pumpkin purée, vegetable broth, diced apples, and all the spices. Whisk everything until it's all evenly mixed. Taste and adjust the spices if you'd like.
Reduce heat to low, and let the stew simmer for about 30 minutes.
When done, remove stew from heat and ladle into bowls. Top off with a crack of fresh black pepper, if you'd like.
This stew is wonderfully hearty to eat on its own, but would also taste great served with lentils, quinoa, or millet!
