Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in red pepper and carrot; cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until softened, about 2 minutes.
Pour wine into the pot; simmer until slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Stir in chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock.
