This satisfying dish is easy to make in a slow cooker.
When counseling many of my patients on healthier nutrition, a common barrier is lack of time to prepare foods. I understand. With our busy lifestyles, coming home to prepare a meal from scratch might seem like an overwhelming task. This is when slow cookers come in handy. Nowadays they come in a variety of sizes, features, and price ranges — and they can be used to prepare almost anything, including soups, legumes, meats, pastas, and even desserts.
Today, I am sharing one of my favorite recipes, adapted from Eating Well. It is packed with plant-based nutrition and my favorite part is the awesome aroma it produces as the spices combine to produce this satisfying and easy-to-make dish.
Prep time: 30 minutes
