This was one of our favorite meals before we went vegan.
We realized we could still eat it though by replacing the beef with veggie crumbs! SCORE!

12oz package of Veggie Crumbs, (this replaces your beef)
1 cup uncooked Brown Rice
3 cups diced Potatoes
1 cup diced Celery
2 cups of sliced Carrots
2 cups canned Kidney Beans
1 tsp of Salt
1/8 tsp of Pepper
1/4 tsp of Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 cup Tomato Sauce
3 cups of water

If you want to use a slow cooker instead of a big pot, only use 1/4 cup of rice and 1/2 cup of water.
Layer the ingredients in the slow cooker in the order given above.
Cover. Cook on Low for 6 hours, or until potatoes and rice are cooked.
We cook ours in a huge pot so that we can add more rice and veggies!

    1. It is really good. :) Thanks for stopping by.

  3. MMM looks yummy! There is so much you can replace with tofu stuff. I like seitan myself.

    Also - have you ever tried vegan garlic bread? Put vegan margarine on the bread, then top it off with nutritional yeast. My husband eats it like all the time. Just thought you might like to try it :D

    1. Thanks! I think we will. That is one thing we really REALLY miss. :)

  4. That looks delicious. I have to give it a go. We hardly have any options for soy mat in Australia. I wish we had tofurky stuff.

    1. We use the ToFurky stuff often. That's a shame you can't get it. :(
