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.”
- Ridiculously Easy Jalapeño PicklesAt the beginning of last fall, the jalapeño plants in my garden went into overdrive, and I found myself with a whole bunch of peppers all at one time. Now, I love jalapeños. I put slices of them, seeds and all, on sandwiches, tacos, burritos, and burgers all summer long. I love the heat and […]
- Banana “Caramel” Ice Cream Sundae (and Some Excellent House News)Waiting to hear good housing news can take a lot out of a family, especially when the weather is as hot as its been out here in the west so early in the summer–even in Portland. Thankfully, a good healthy dessert and a feel-good movie are great distractions to the “what ifs” that are naturally […]
