1 large onion, chopped
3 ribs of celery, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
½ head cabbage, chopped
4 carrots, sliced
4 potatoes, cut in large dice
1⁄3 cup wild brown rice or other gluten-free option.
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon thyme
½ teaspoon rosemary, crushed
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 cups vegetable broth or low-sodium vegetable broth
3 cups cooked great northern beans (2 cans, drained)
1 14 ½-ounce can diced tomatoes
Handful of fresh chopped parsley
1 pound of lean, ground beef, bison, or turkey - omit and add Cannellini beans now you have vegetarian style!
Brown burger on stove top with onions and garlic. Drain and set aside.
Place the vegetables, seasonings, and rice into a large (at least 5 quart) crock pot. Add enough vegetable broth to just cover the vegetables (about 8 cups; add more as needed). Add the ground meat, onion and garlic to the crock pot.
Cover and cook on low heat for 7 hours. Salt to taste.
Serve and only share if you want too! :) or portion it out and have lunches for the week! Enjoy!
To make it vegetarian just omit the ground meat.
