Even though DH thought it was just okay, I absolutely loved it and will give it 5 stars anyway. I will make it again even if I have to eat it by myself! I made it as directed only I didn't thaw the veggies beforehand, I just tossed everything together in the crock pot and left it for around 8 hours on low. All the veggies broke up into bitty pieces and everything meshed together into one delicious soupy mixture that I served over brown rice. Yum!
Love flexible recipes and this one is very flexible. Was great over whole wheat couscous (would also be very good over rice) as a side dish, but would also make a great vegetarian main dish. DH called dibs on any leftovers for his next day lunch. Made as written using the broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot mix. And used the oven bake option. Thanks for the post.
For being so easy, this was just great! In addition to the frozen carrots/broccoli/cauliflower blend, I also added half a bag of frozen soy beans. Since I was adding additional veggies, I threw in half a can of water to spread the sauce a little further. Made plenty to serve three of us as a main meal with lots of leftovers. We served over steamed rice as suggested - true vegetarian comfort food!
