Vegan Seitan Beef Stew

"This cosy vegan beef stew is the perfect cozy winter dinner. It is full of flavour and very hearty. We use Seitan to replicate beef, which is marinated in red wine and is cooked with vegetables and a tasty broth. It goes well with polenta, mashed potatoes or bread. This vegan beef stew is as meaty as it gets for vegan meals. It is surprisingly similar to the original and it is super cozy and hearty.In Italy we call this meal "Brasato" and it is super comforting. It’s perfect for special occasions or simply to treat yourself to a delicious meal."
