Celebrating the start of autumn with a nice hearty stew. This recipe is from Vegan on the Cheap by Robin Robertson. It's so easy to throw everything in the slow cooker in the morning and then I get to smell it cooking all day! I'm glad I was home to watch it because it didn't take 8 hours to cook like the recipe stated.
A great, big slow cooker full of stew. This filled up my 4 quart size Crock Pot. Lots of yummy veggies, barley and Great Northern beans.
This is definitely a thick, hearty, homey stew. I like my food a little spicier so I added some Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce on top of mine. Perfect with some crusty Italian Herb garlic bread.
Time to make some more Italian Bread Herb Mix. This dried herb mix comes from Herb Mixtures & Spicy Blends. Last Christmas I quadrupled the recipe and packaged bottles up for gifts along with other herby items.
