  1. In a large pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add in the diced onions and sauté until soft, a few minutes.
  2. Then, add in the garlic and stir until lightly fragrant, about a minute or so. Be careful not to let the garlic brown!
  3. Add chopped spinach and stir it up well with the garlic and onion, for about another minute or so.
  4. Then, add can tomatoes, pumpkin purée, diced apples, and all the spices. Whisk everything until it’s all evenly mixed. Taste and adjust the spices if you’d like.
  5. Reduce heat to low, add vegetable broth and let the stew simmer for about 30 minutes.
  6. When done, remove stew from heat and ladle into bowls.
  7. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This stew is wonderfully hearty to eat on its own, but would also taste great served with lentils, quinoa, or millet!
