Vegetarian Crumble Stew By Don Shetterly

Vegetarian Crumble Stew
By Don
Here's a great recipe for some vegetarian stew made with burger crumbles.  It is nothing fancy and very simple to make.  If you're looking for something creative and easy to fix for a few meals or a bunch of friends, why not give this a try.

Here's the ingredients that I put into it, but you can put anything you like.  In fact, be creative and make it into something that fits your tastes.
  • 1 Package of Burger Crumbles
  • Several potatoes cut and diced (depending upon cooking pot size)
  • 1 Package of carrots cut up and diced
  • 2 Ears of corn with corn cut from the cob
  • 1 Can of black beans with juice
  • 1 Can of diced tomatoes
  • Dried Lima Beans (amount depends upon cooking pot size)
  • Dried Split Peas
  • Dried Black Eyed Peas
  • Spices like white pepper, ground mustard, basil, oregano, celery salt, salt

The directions to make this are very simple.  Just add all these ingredients into your cooking pot and fill with water.  Put this on the stove and turn heat to high to bring to a boil.  Then simmer for approximately two hours or until all ingredients are well cooked and begins to thicken.  Serve warm with home made bread if you have it. You can always freeze some of the left overs in a small one quart size Ziploc bag.  If you freeze it in a flat brick, they store easily in the freezer.  You can then pull it out at any time and microwave it for a few minutes or defrost it, giving you delicious stew at any time you want it.

The fresher the ingredients the better and of course, there is NO pink slime in this stew!  The burger crumbles gives it a great flavor and adds to the overall nutrition of the dish.  If there are other ingredients you like, feel free to add or substitute them.

Hope you enjoy this simple and easy to make recipe.  If you need another great recipe, try Vegetarian Mexican Pasta by Don, click this link.
