Snow may still be on the ground but spring is in the air. I decided to make one last comfort food meal using my slow cooker to help melt the snow away! A slow cookers or crock-pot is a go to staple for me especially when I am looking for a hearty meal but am short on time. Slow cookers are a great way to experiment with new flavor combinations and spices. This meal I used what was left in my cabinets and refrigerator. All I had to do was chop up a few ingredients and tossed them in the slow cooker. Dinner was cooking, with less than 10 minutes of prep time and while I was shopping and playing soccer. Nothing beats a delicious meal ready when you come home after a great workout, long day at work or in my case a soccer game.
Slow Cooker, Snow Melter Vegetarian Stew
1 can black beans; 1 can kidney beans; 1 can stewed tomatoes; 1 clove of garlic chopped; 1 cup yellow onions diced; 1 cup peppers diced; 1 zucchini slices; 1 yellow squash sliced; 2 small sweet potatoes/yams cubed; 1 cup baby carrots; 1 cup frozen corn; 1 seasoning packet (I had taco seasoning left so I used that)
My Challenge for you this week is to get out your slow cooker/ crock pot. Clean out your cabinets and refrigerator to make a yummy meal and saw farewell to winter!
