Vegetarian Swedish Sausage Stew

October 13, 2012

Here’s a classic… with a vegetarian and Primal twist.

Swedish sausage stew is a classical Danish dish. That’s right, Danish, not Swedish. The dish is actually basically unknown in Sweden. It is said that the name comes from Danish campers who went to Sweden and made this dish while they were there… (huh?). Anyway, in Denmark it is a very famous meal, and in my family it was also a definite go-to comfort/easy food. My dad used to make a huge pot full and then we would have it for dinner 3 days in a row. Never got sick of it. So, the classic recipe has sausage and potatoes in it. I don’t eat sausage anymore at all and only rarely touch potatoes. So I changed it up, inspired by one of my favorite blogs:

My version uses organic soy sausage which is why I haven’t used the word “Primal” or “Paleo” in the title of this post, because soy certainly doesn’t fall under any of those categories. However, I did switch out the potatoes with parsley root. Works just as well and tastes wonderful! So it’s a semi-Primal, but definitely vegetarian meal 🙂 Make it, love it. Make it again… and again and again and again and…

You need:

  • 2 onions
  • 4 organic (smoked) soy sausages (I use the brand Nagel)
  • 6 parsley root
  • 2 cans of peeled tomatoes
  • 8 mushrooms
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 2 scallions
  • About 1-2 dl cream
  • a teaspoon of paprika
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • pepper
  • olive oil


1. Peel and chop onions, parsley root, mushrooms, bell pepper, scallions, and garlic.

2. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil in a large pot for a few minutes.

3. Add parsley root, mushrooms, bell pepper and scallions. Saute for about 5 minutes.


4. Chop the sausages into little pieces and add them to the pot. Saute for a few minutes.

5. Add peeled tomatoes, cream and pepper. Stir and “break” tomatoes with a large spoon. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.

6. Serve with fresh cut chives and possibly a salad or cooked vegetables on the side. This time, I cooked up some brussels sprouts and served on the side. Nom nom nom nom nom….
