A look in my pantry revealed that I had lentils, rice and sweet potatoes, and I managed to find celery, carrots, onion and two tomatoes - To the crock pot!
1 cup green lentils, rinsed well
1/2 cup brown rice (not instant)
1 large sweet potato - cut to 1 inch pieces
1 large onion - diced
1 celery stalk - diced
2 tomatoes - diced
1 carrot - cut into 1 inch pieces
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp rosemary
dash cayenne pepper
1 tsp vegan condensed vegetable stock
~3 cu water (more if you are not checking on it all day)
- Throw all ingredients into crock pot!
- I put mine on the high/4 hour setting, but I think it would be better cooked at 6 hours
- Monitor the water level, lentils and rice suck up a lot!
Makes about 6 servings. For being a 'throw together meal' this was fantastic! Really good with crunchy garlic bread or croutons! The sweet potato was an amazing addition!
