This recipe came from a September 1996 issue of Woman's Day magazine, tweaked just a bit. It's so easy to make and so healthy - great when you want a hearty meatless meal!

This turned out quite tasty. I used zucchini, red bell pepper and 5 garlic cloves. I loved the fact it uses the crockpot. I cooked mine on low for 8 hours. Made for Zaar Hits 1-2-3 Tag Game 2011.

I had to make this recipe, as #1 it used the crock pot, #2 it was a stew, and #3 it was all veggies (I try to eat vegetarian at least 4 days per week). I only made a couple changes. . .used only 1 zucchini, only 1 yellow bell pepper, 1/2 a potato, and then added a handful of spinach, 2 tomatoes and about 6 oz of mushrooms. My tomato sauce was roast garlic flavor worked well. I chose the 4 hour on high option; at 4 hours my small diced potatoes were not quite done and the beans were turning to mush. So next time, I will put the potatoes on the bottom and see if that does the trick. I also added quite a bit of seasoning after cooking: jugo seasoning sauce, seasoning salt, Italian seasoning, and some hot sauce. I put it in the fridge, as I think this is probably one of those stews that tastes better on day two. Will be back tomorrow with that update! Made for Photo Tag.
