Winter Warming Veggie Stew with Onion and Sage Dumplings

This is a super tasty, comforting, quick stew I wanted to share here. I have given the vegetarian recipe version, since the vegetables and spices are what really makes this work.

I used some leftovers from a roast chicken and it was great. I hope you enjoy it! 😉

So I decided to finally start doing my own.It’s so easy to make it and it tastes so much better than the shop bought one… 😉 Continue reading
