A gluten free, slow cooker, vegetarian meal so you are all ready for Meatless Monday!
Slow cookers are one of the world's greatest inventions. It almost makes dinner for you. Put everything in before you leave for the day and when you come home the house smells great and dinner is almost on the table. There aren't even many dishes to do after you eat. I use mine often, especially throughout the fall and winter. They are great for stews or chilli, just the thing on a cold winter evening.
For a one-dish dinner add 3 peeled, cubed, potatoes before cooking.
This recipe makes enough to put some in the freezer for a day when there is no time to cook.
