Vegan Stew/No Meatballs


1 batch No-Meat Meatballs (or as many you can stuff into the pot), cooked.

1 tbsp oil

2 onions, chopped

2 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

1 x 400g tin baked beans

1 x 400g tin sweetcorn, drained

1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

1 bay leaf

Salt and pepper

50g dairy-free cheese, grated (optional)




1 x 400g tin black beans, drained and rinsed

1 x 400g tin cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

1 onion, finely chopped

3 tsp mixed herbs (or you can use a mixture of dried thyme, oregano and basil)

3 cups breadcrumbs

Small amount flour


Put all the ingredients together in a large bowl and mix well. If the mixture seems a little too wet, you can add more breadcrumbs or a little flour if required. Whizz everything up using a stick blender or regular blender until nice and mushy. Use a teaspoon to make the mixture into little balls, dusting with flour if needed to prevent sticking. To cook, either place on baking paper and bake in the oven at 200C for 20 minutes, or shallow fry in a large frying pan over medium heat for around 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Once cooked, eat them however you like! Or add them to the recipe above.


Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

Heat the oil in a large pot or casserole dish over medium heat. Add the onion and cook a few minutes until soft. Throw in the baked beans, sweetcorn and tomatoes. Add the bay leaf, season well with salt and pepper and mix everything well together. Pop in as many No-Meat Meatballs as you like and stir them in gently.

Top this wonderful colourful mix with the sliced potatoes and season again with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid or foil and cook in the centre of the oven for around an hour and a half.

Remove the lid or foil, sprinkle over the grated cheese if using, then turn up the heat to 200ºC and cook for another half an hour, until the potatoes are browned and cooked through.

This filling stew is a meal in itself but we love it served with steamed green veggies!
