Frugal Comfort Food
Hearty Vegan Stew
When the weather gets cool, I turn to comfort food like this slow cooker vegan barley stew.
When I was growing up, I remember having Beef with Barley soup out of a can on rainy days.
However, these days I prefer to make things from scratch.
The simple recipe calls for basic ingredients that I typically keep on hand.
It only takes a couple minutes of prep time, and then the the crock pot does all the work.
Slow Cooker Vegan Barley Stew Recipe
1 1/2 cups Barley
4 cups Vegetable Stock
2 cups Water
1/2 Medium Onion, chopped
3 Carrots, sliced
2 Medium Potatoes, cubed
3 Cloves Garlic, sliced
1/2 t Salt (or more to taste)
1 t Cumin
1 t Hatch Chile Powder
1) Combine all ingredients in crock pot.
2) Cook on high for about 3 hours. Serve immediately or pack in airtight containers to store in the refrigerator or freezer.
This beautiful dinnerware is the new Boutique Brushed pattern from Corelle.
It’s available in 6 different colors that can be mixed and matched.
Like the 1970’s Corelle plates that I have, the dinnerware is lightweight, durable and chip resistant.
It’s microwave and dishwasher safe, so I expect these new plates, bowls and mugs to last a long, long time!
