Servings: 3-4


  • ⅓ cup onions
  • ⅓ cup celery
  • ⅓ cup carrots, plus more for adding into soup later
  • 5 cups hot water
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cup potatoes, chopped
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup soy sauce (be sure to purchase gluten-free to suit dietary preference)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Step 1

Fill the Almond Cow base to the MIN line (5 cups) with hot water.

Step 2

Add ⅓ cup onions, ⅓ cup celery, and ⅓ cup carrots to the filter basket. Attach the filter basket to the top of the Almond Cow and twist in the direction of the close arrow to secure. Attach the top to the base.

Step 3

Plug in the Almond Cow and press the cow start button. It will run through 3 automatic stages. When the green light stops flashing, it is complete.

Step 4

Set filter basket contents aside and refill the filter basket with 1 cup mushrooms, tomato paste, thyme leaves from 2 sprigs, and oregano. Press the cow for another cycle.

Step 5

Pour base liquid and all filter basket contents into a pot and add bay leaves, remaining cup of mushrooms, potatoes, kidney beans, soy sauce, and salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6

Cook it down on low-medium heat for approximately 1 hour. It will naturally thicken during this time. If you’d like to shorten the cooking time, you can thicken the stew with a thickening agent, like arrowroot. Enjoy!
