Vegan or vegetarian hearty stew recipe?

I'm in the mood for a hearty, rich stew. Root veggies, tofu or seitan, rich sauce. Any recipes out there? Thanks!

    Cross posting from Kosher (this was shared there). I've been getting into a pretty extreme fitness/health regimen so I've been making a lot of these dishes. This is perfect timing for me so I figured I'd share what I've made so far.

    Two weeks ago, I enjoyed a week of Tofurky Sausage Jambalaya (see http://www.tofurky.com/recipes/recipe_details.asp?RecipeDataID=65).

    Last week, I had slow cooker vegetable curry (http://www.joyofkosher.com/recipes/slow-cooker-vegetable-curry/). Very spicy, and I love that.

    This week, I am enjoying the best vegetarian chili recipe in the world (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/the-best...).

      Old Williams-Sonoma Curried Lentil Soup recipe is still my mindless go-to.

        Something really easy to do is a curry. Saute onions, add curry powder and continue sauteeing for a minute, thicken with a tablespoon of flour, add root vegetables like potatoes, carrots and daikon plus any veggies you might have on hand like tomatoes, celery, and peppers. Add water as needed. This always seems to turn out well.

          I love beef bourguignon. I use chunks of seitan, or tofu (sometimes both) instead of beef, and veggie bacon. Here's the recipe I adapted from. It's much simpler than the classic Julia Child recipe:

            I served this for a dinner party once, thinking it would be similar to matzoh ball soup. No one made it past the soup course as it was so unexpectedly hearty.

                  I was thinking the same thing. I have not made this yet, and when I do I will substitute Yukon Golds for the sweet potatoes, but it still looks good (and easy - which for me right now is key): http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe...
