Mediterranean Style Beans and Vegetables (Crock Pot)

Mediterranean Style Beans and Vegetables (Crock Pot) created by AmandaInOz

I usually make tomato-ey, spicy bean recipes, but this one is different since even though it does have chili peppers in it, it really is mild (or maybe I just have a flame retardant tongue!). No tomatoes, either. This is modified just a little from a recipe from Crescent Dragonwagon's "The Passionate Vegetarian." She suggests serving it with bread & oil, or rice or barley, as a side dish, or with sour cream. I like it either hot or cold just as it is, or with rice or over pasta. I think any beans except maybe black would work, and I often use cooked dry beans instead of canned.

    I like this recipe and enjoy it as written and cooked only a few hours on low. I also like to flavor leftovers with one or more of the following -bbq sauce or curry paste or cumin or salsa or worcestershire or citrus juice. I think it would be excellent cold with chopped tomatoes and fresh basil. Thanks for posting!

    This one just didn't do it for me. I thought it was quite bland and everything turned to mush after only half the time in the crock pot. I served it over rice and added a little lemon juice and some more heat...still just didn't do it for me

    My son made this for dinner & everyone loved it. He did add a 10 oz can of chicken & it's broth as he is a meat eater. He also used dried jalapeno peppers as the chili pepper. They worked great! Thanks for an easy recipe! It was a boost to his self-esteem.

    5 stars for just how satisfying this is for such a healthy, low maintenance meal. I used 3 whole chilies, seeds included and served with couscous and some light sour cream. We really liked that you could actually taste the fresh vegetables, rather than them being covered with a sauce or unnecessary spices. Yum! Thanks Vino Girl!
