Cook the stew

    Step-by-step Instructions:

    1. Heat olive oil: In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
    2. Sauté Aromatics: Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot. Sauté until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
    3. Add Meat (Optional): If using meat, add the cubed beef or chicken to the pot. Cook until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.
    4. Add Vegetables: Stir in the chopped carrots, celery, potato, and red bell pepper. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    5. Pour in broth: Add the vegetable or chicken broth to the pot.
    6. Season: Stir in the thyme, rosemary, paprika, salt, pepper, and bay leaves.
    7. Simmer: Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and let it simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the flavors are well combined.
    8. Add carrot puree: Stir in the prepared carrot puree. This will give the stew a rich, smooth texture and a slightly sweet flavor.
    9. Add peas: Stir in the frozen peas and cook for another 5 minutes.
    10. Adjust seasoning: Taste and adjust the seasoning with additional salt and pepper if needed.

    Serve

    1. Garnish: Remove the bay leaves. Ladle the stew into bowls and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
    2. Enjoy: Serve hot, with crusty bread or over rice if desired.

    This carrot-based stew is hearty, flavorful, and nutritious, offering a unique twist by using carrot puree in place of tomato puree. Enjoy the rich, comforting flavors that this vegetable-packed stew brings to your table!
