It’s Crock Pot Tuesday! I have a vegetarian recipe for you this week. Prep this meal before you go to work, throw it in the crock pot and come home to a delicious and healthy home cooked meal. You will wonder why you don’t use your crock pot more often!
1 tablespoon Kelapo coconut oil
3 cloves garlic
2 medium yellow onion
2 medium green pepper
2 medium white potatoes
2 c. baby carrots
2 15.5 ounce cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
4 c. vegetable broth
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
3 c. cooked brown rice
Heat oil in crock pot on high setting. Using a garlic press, crush garlic cloves directly into crock pot. Stir and allow to simmer while chopping remaining vegetables. Chop onion into large chunks, as for a stew and stew into crock pot. Slice white ends of the leeks into 1/4″ rounds, discarding green tops and stir into crock pot. Chop green pepper into large chunks and stir into crock pot. Chop potatoes into eight pieces each, leaving skins on. Add potatoes, carrots, beans, broth, chili powder, salt and pepper to crock pot. Stir all the ingredients together well. Cover and cook until potatoes are done, 3 hours on high or 6 to 8 hours on low. Serve red beans over rice.
