Heat the oil in a large stock pot over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes until it becomes fragrant and translucent.

Add the garlic, mushrooms, pinch of salt, and continue to cook until the mushrooms release their liquid. Sprinkly the flour over the vegetables and stir to combine.

Add the carrots, parsnips, and potatoes to the pot along with stout, stock, Worcester sauce, tomato paste, bay leaves, thyme and rosemary. Bring to a boil and then allow the stew to simmer for 30 minutes until veggies are fork tender. Remove bay leaves and then season with remaining salt and pepper.
