Upon learning about my recent food intolerance, I decided to adjust my diet to eat less beef and find substitutes for the recipes I love to make– like this lamb stew recipe.
I usually make beef stew, but I must admit that lamb stew has been such a delicious replacement.
Even my 5-year old loves it!
I think my favorite thing about this stew is that you can enjoy this year-round for a comforting meal, not just during the winter.
Making lamb stew is a great way to sneak in vegetables for picky eaters.
You can add your little one’s favorite vegetables to this dish and even have them help you in the kitchen while you’re making it. If your little one is part of the process of making a dish, they will be more likely to eat it as well!
My favorite thing about this dairy free recipe is that it actually doesn’t take a very long to make. So if you’re a busy mom and are looking for a wholesome dinner you can put together in under an hour, this lamb stew is perfect.
You can even use your crockpot if you wanted to cut down on your time. You can prepare this early on in the day using your crockpot so that it’s ready for dinner later on. I personally don’t have a crockpot, so I just use the stove top and it turns out perfectly.
You can have this stew on its own, or alongside with some rice which is what I usually do.
I love adding cauliflower in place of potatoes, but that’s just my preference. You can substitute for whatever vegetables you prefer. It will still be delicious!
This lamb stew recipe is the perfect dairy-free substitution if you're looking for alternatives or if you have a food intolerance to dairy, like me.
