  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 pounds baby yellow potatoes cut in halves about 2-inches
  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • 3 cups vegan beef-style broth
  • 1/2 cup Guinness or other Irish stout beer
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped


  • Into a large soup pot over medium-high heat, add the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions. Cook, stirring frequently for 3 minutes, or until softened.
  • Add the garlic and continue cooking for an additional 30 seconds. Sprinkle with flour and stir to coat.
  • Add the potatoes and carrots. Stir in beef-style broth, beer, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, salt, thyme, and black pepper.
  • Bring just to a boil then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 20 minutes, or until vegetables are fork-tender. Remove cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes, until broth is thickened slightly. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  • Spoon into soup bowls, sprinkle with parsley, and serve hot.
