Recipe Adapted from: Best Slow Cooker Cookbook Ever: Versatility and Inspiration for New Generation Machines
1 can crushed tomatoes in tomato puree — (28-ounce)
1 can chunky salsa — (14 1/2-ounce)…
This dish can easily be made in a slow cooker. Add all ingredients at once and cook on the high heat setting for 8 to 10 hours. Be sure to soak the beans overnight before you begin.
1 1/2 cups chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1 medium onion, chopped…
1 pound dried split peas
1 leek — rinsed & chopped…
This stew is colorful and full flavored, thanks to a host of vegetables and seasonings. I like to cook the collard greens separately to avoid any bitter taste in the stew. Because sweet potatoes break down easily, it’s important not to cook this stew too long. For a mild, yet still flavorful, version, eliminate the hot chile.
Butternut or other winter squash may be used instead of the pumpkin. This can be made either in the crockpot or on the stove.
Lots of great veggie burritos!
Meaty lentils are featured in this vegetarian version of Sloppy Joes. Serve on toasted rolls with a fresh batch of coleslaw.
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon mustard…
3 cups sliced raw potatoes — (15 ounces)
3 cups sliced carrots…
1-19 oz can tomatoes, with juice, broken up
1 small eggplant, with peel, cut into 1/2″ pieces…
For those of you who own crockpots… Made this last night and it was great and so easy!
Robin Robertson writes that this recipe is “great for a crowd at holiday gatherings when you want the seasonal taste of pumpkin without the fuss of a pie.”
- Black and Red Lentil ChiliThis is probably the fastest chili I’ve ever made without using canned beans. The secret is black beluga lentils, which cook quickly and keep their shapes, giving this chili a very hearty texture. I combined them with split red lentils, which cook just as quickly but break down to create a thicker broth. Together they […]
- Is “Significant Benefit” Enough?Thanks to my internet pal MS Nomad, I just learned that March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month. A little while back she also posted a link I shared on my blog’s facebook page to an article/video by Dr. Gregor about treating multiple sclerosis with diet. He gives an overview of Dr. Swank’s pioneering work, stressing how those diagnosed with […]
