10 green queen olives with pimentos, diced
1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes with juice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a spicier stew)
Sea salt, to taste
Put the onion, 1 teaspoon sazón, 1 teaspoon olive oil and ½ cup water in a large skillet or soup pot. Cover and let cook 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 cup vegetable broth, potatoes, sweet pepper, bell pepper, garlic, 1 teaspoon sazón and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Cover and let cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the garbanzo beans, vegan sausage and olives. Add the diced tomatoes, 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 teaspoon sazón and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional) and stir to combine.
