Tomato "sausage" Stew

Valentines Day has welcomed a new tradition in our family.
For the past two years Josh and I have spent this holiday of LOVE with our siblings.
I think it is the perfect way to celebrate some of the most important people in our lives.

Last night I made dinner and was inspired by a blog that I follow.

It turned out to be a very tasty evening!!

Tomato "sausage" Stew


28 oz can fire roasted tomatoes
3 cups veggie broth ( I used low sodium and an extra cup )
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 bunch kale
1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
3/4 cup frozen peas
2 bay leaves
 1 heaping Tbsp chili powder
salt & pepper to taste
3 pinches cayenne pepper
3 Tofurky Italian Sausage links sliced into 1/4 in slices
fresh parsley to garnish

* organic when possible *


-place tomatoes and 1 cup veggie broth in blender until smooth

-put mixture into large pot with the rest of the veg stock and bring to a boil

-add in spices, bay leaves, frozen peas, and reduce to simmer

-simmer for about 5 mins until frozen peas are soft

-add remaining ingredients

-add more spices, salt, pepper, to taste

-simmer on low until ready to serve at least 15 mins

-top with fresh parsley when ready to serve

The easy way to clean and cut kale....

de-stem by peeling off each side a little and sliding your fingers down the stem to remove the leaf
( juice the stems! )

fold the leaf in half and roll

thinly slice to chiffonade

serve with a salad

and of course a crazy decadent dessert plate!!
