1Sautéing Symphony: Begin your culinary journey by heating oil over medium heat in a pan. Add diced onions and sauté for 2-4 minutes until they turn translucent, stirring frequently.

2Vegetable Ballet: Introduce a colorful medley of carrots, potatoes, celery, garlic, and a bouquet of fresh herbs and spices to the pan. Sauté for an additional minute, infusing the kitchen with aromatic notes. Pour in vegetable broth to set the stage for the upcoming flavors.

3Boiling Crescendo: Bring the mixture to a gentle boil over high heat. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes, allowing the vegetables to absorb the essence of the herbs and spices. Add frozen peas, continuing the simmer for an additional 15 minutes until the veggies and peas reach sublime tenderness.

4Creamy Interlude: In a small bowl, create a harmonious blend of cornstarch with dairy-free heavy cream or canned coconut milk. Gently pour this creamy elixir into the stew, adding white wine for an extra touch of sophistication. Allow the stew to simmer for an additional 3-4 minutes, letting the creaminess envelop the vegetables in luxurious harmony.

5Seasonal Crescendo: Taste the stew and adjust the seasonings to your liking. Feel free to add more salt, pepper, or spices to achieve a perfect symphony of flavors. For a creamier consistency, use an immersion blender to blend half of the soup.

6Garnish and Enjoy: Elevate the visual appeal of your stew by garnishing it with fresh herbs, adding a final touch of elegance. Serve and savor the fruits of your culinary endeavor.
