It feels so good to get a warm meal in your stomach on these cold winter days! Yesterday, I was pressed for time but wanted to eat a healthy and easy, hearty meal. I created this vegan sausage stew in the crockpot and served it over rice. This takes about 20 minutes to a half hour to prepare, will serve 6-8 people and is delicious. Give it a shot!
1-2 vegan sausages (any type), sliced
4-5 carrots, chopped into bite-sized pieces
2-3 small potatoes, chopped into bite-sized pieces
2-3 small yams, chopped into bite sized pieces
1-2 celery sticks, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 large green, red or yellow pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups frozen peas
I cup of any kind of premade pasta sauce (I used a garlic-roasted blend)
2 – 3 cups water
3 Tbsp Italian spice blend (I used a combo of oregano, thyme and basil)
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp black pepper
- Prepare above ingredients.
- Place all chopped ingredients into a large crockpot. Add herbs, spices, sauce, water and mix. There should be enough water in your crockpot to reach the top of the ingredients but not cover them. Add more water if necessary.
- Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
- Serve with rice or noodles.
