Chestnut Stew


Finally the cold weather has arrived. Now it is time for some hot and hearty dishes with some seasonal ingredients. One of my favourite in November: Chestnuts. And what is better than a tasty chestnut stew to get warm during those cold and rainy autmn days


What you need

  • ย 500g chestnuts
  • 500ml vegetable broth
  • 1 onion
  • 3 spoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper for seasoning


How you do it

Roast the chestnuts in the oven for 30 minutes. Make sure to poke holes into the chestnuts, as they expand in volume when heated up. (If you do not do that, the chestnuts will literally explode in the oven leaving you with a big mess). Let the chestnuts cool down. Peel them afterwards.

In a pot heat up the olive oil. Chop the onion and start roasting it. Add the chestnuts and roast everything for 5 minutes aprox. Cover with the vegetable broth and season with salt and pepper. Let the stew cook for 20-30 minutes aprox. Afterwards blend everything.


Serve and Enjoy.
