Estonian Stew

Estonian Stew

This rustic vegetable stew is delicious and warming. It’s the perfect nourishment for a cold night or when you want a bowl of simple, home-cooked comfort. This recipe comes from the Revised and Expanded Edition of Medical Medium.

Potatoes are antiviral, they’re antifungal and antibacterial, with nutritional cofactors and coenzymes plus bioactive compounds to keep you healthy and assist you with stress.

Mushrooms help reduce fungus, bacteria, and viruses in the intestinal tract and liver.

Carrots are a quick liver refueling source of glucose that’s attached to minerals and vitamins.

Onions have antimicrobial sulfur compounds that expel unfriendly pathogens from the liver.

Estonian Stew


  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 4 1/2 cups roughly chopped potatoes
  • 2 1/2 cups Healing Broth or water
  • 3 cups roughly chopped cabbage
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh dill, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh parsley, roughly chopped


Place a large ceramic non-stick pot on medium-high heat and add the onions, mushrooms (if using), and carrots. Cook for 3-5 minutes, until the onions and carrots start to soften, adding a spoonful of water if needed.

Pour in the Healing Broth or water, place the lid on, and bring to a simmer. Cook covered for 10 minutes, until the potatoes and carrots are almost soft, and then remove the lid and cook for a further 5 minutes uncovered.

Add the chopped cabbage and stir until evenly mixed. Cook for 2-3 more minutes, until the cabbage is soft. Remove from heat and stir in the dill and parsley. Serve immediately.


  • When you’re choosing between water and Healing Broth for the ingredients, keep in mind that the broth will produce a richer flavor. Store-bought vegetable stock isn’t called for because it’s very difficult to find a variety that’s free of oil, salt, natural flavors, and/or other additives. For convenience, make a batch of Healing Broth in advance and freeze it (consider ice cube trays for easy thawing) so you have it on hand for recipes like this.

Serves 2-3
