I am loving my new crock pot, so here is another recipe for you. :) It's healthy and yummy (great combination).
Rinse a 16 oz. package of dry split peas.
Add split peas, 1 pound sliced mushrooms (I used baby portabellas), and a bay leaf to slow cooker.
Peel 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes, and add to slow cooker.
Slice 3 green onions (and of course add them to the slow cooker as well).
1 14 oz. can unsweetened coconut milk
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
2 - 3 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (less if you like things mild - this was fine for my kids, but they like spicy)
salt and pepper to taste
Pour 4 cups chicken broth over all (you can use vegetable broth is you want to keep it vegetarian).
Add 2 cups water and stir
Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours. Sprinkle with snipped fresh basil if desired.
I made naan for the first time to go with it (using this recipe). I didn't have a grill, so I used my cast iron skillet like when I make tortillas. Didn't look all that great, but tasted really good! :)
I made a pdf of this recipe thinking that would be so much more helpful for you to just download and print. Only problem is I don't know how to post it! Any ideas?
