Here are some of the recipes
Split Pea and Potatoe Soup...This is so good..It is very hearty and thick and I serve it with a hot fresh loaf of hm bread for supper...
3 T butter(I use Earth Balance)
1 large onion finely chopped
1 pound of carrots cut into 1/2 inch rounds
2 celery stalks cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 pound of dried split peas,sorted and picked through
2 quarts of veggie stock(you can use chicken but I like veggie)
1 bay leaf
2 lbs of Yukon Gold Potatoes cut into chunks
Suatee your onion in your butter(you don't have to but I like it)and put in your crockpot..Add all of your other ingredients..Stir to mix and cook on low for 6-10 hours...Remove Bay leaf and serve with a loaf of Fresh hot hm bread....
Brown Beans....I make this veggie and non-veggie depending on what night it is....Very good both ways and cheap...
1 pound of dried pinto beans,washed and picked through
1 large onion sliced into rings
salt and pepper
4 slices of bacon(can leave it out,I do alot)
couple pinches of baking soda
Put your pinto beans in crockpot and cover with water...I usually fill the pot 3/4 way full...Add you baking soda(helps with unwanted gas).If you want the bacon in slice the bacon pieces into 1/4 inch.Put those in...Add in your onion slices and add onion powder and salt and pepper...couple shakes of each...Cook on low all day for 8-10 hours...This will be more watery when it is finished...I turn off the crockpot and remove the dish and allow it to sit on the counter for an hour...This cools and thickens the bean broth...Then I add more seasoning to taste...I serve this with cornbread hot out of the oven...Very cheap meal...Very filling...We like it...But be sure to season it real good or it will be too bland..
4 potatoes chunked
1 pound carrots chunked
1/2 pound mushrooms,chunked
1 onion,sliced in circles
4 stalks celery,sliced in 1/4 rounds
2 teaspoons of soy sauce
1 quart veggie stock,either hm or bought(I buy it,I am lazy)
salt and pepper
Put all ingredients in your crockpot except for the cornstarch.Stir to mix and cook on low all day for 8-10 hours...
If you like a thick stew and I do...1 cup of the broth in a bowl and stir the cornstarch in till mixed and add to the stew and mix...Cover for another hour and it will thicken...Don't forget to take the bay leaf out...
Sometimes I add dumplings to the stew....
WE like this one on cold winter evenings and I like to serve it with a loaf of fresh hm hot bread....
I will post more later....Love Mylie xx
