Delicious! Perfect for our vegetarian family, thick, hearty, almost meaty(!) stew. I added one 28 oz can of whole tomatoes, cut up, for additional tomatoes, extra spinach for good nutrients - everybody LOVED it!
PS 1) I ALWAYS use a slow cooker liner to make cleaning up a breeze. 2) One of my daughters bought me a "Vidalia Chop Wizard" a couple of years ago, it's the only kitchen "gadget" I actually use, cuts chopping time by 75%!

This turned out better than I hoped for! I can't wait to eat it tomorrow as I know it will be even better. I added fresh lemon juice at the end and I will definitely make this again.

Very hearty, very flavorful. Easy to make... 15 or 20 minutes worth of prep time to cut the veggies. I will definitely be making this one again and again.
