Several stews (in my new rice maker)

Stew. Wow. Yum. The only thing better?.. having it with a a slice of homemade bread!


Do you know what is so fantastically wonderful about this little gadget?? Coming home to dinner! This is soooo easy. Unbelievably awesome. The apartment smells wonderful. Dinner is ready. Wow. How did I ever get along without this?

The only thing that limits this products usage is your imagination..


2.5 c water
1/4 c brown rice (dry)
1/4 c lentils (dry)
1/4 - 1/2 c boca crumbles (or sub plain TVP + spices)
2 stalks celery, sliced
1/2 zucchini, sliced
1 carrot, sliced
medium potato, diced medium sized
1 bullion
2 heaping T nutritional yeast
1 t paprika, garlic, onion, chili powder, raw salt


1/4 c lentils (dry)
1/4 c brown rice (dry)
1/4 c rotel (use as spicy as you want)
2-3 c water
Approximately 1/4 c: frozen corn, diced potato, peas, diced carrot
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 T bullion + garlic, paprika, onion, salt


Try curry!

How easy is this? Put all of your ingredients in the cooker. Hit start. That's how easy. Or, alternatively you can throw this in before you leave the house and set the timer... then dinner is ready when you come home!

That's it!


* Don't have a cooker? Just cook this right on your stove. I put the harder veggies in first... cook about 30-60 minutes, then add softer veggies. If adding pasta, add it with just enough time (according to the package) at the end.

* You can play around with the spices. You can open the lid, stir and smell it. That's how I always decide when/if to add more spices and what to add. * Don't be afraid! Trust that nose of yours.
