It's time for another HH6 post again! This month's challenge:
With the mercury continuing to rise this month, let's once again give ourselves a break from the stove. Create an original 5 ingredient slow cooker recipe. Salt and/or pepper do not count as one of the 5 ingredients.
I made it just in time. I was planning on doing this challenge while I was on the east coast vacationing with my family, but thanks to Hurricane Irene that didn't happen. Now this particular challenge was a bit difficult, simply because I never ever limit my ingredients. I'm very much a throw this and that into a pot sort of cook, especially when it comes to spices. So I decided that instead of making a meal for me, I'd aim this one at my brother, who is just moving into his first apartment. Like all young adults, money and time are a bit tight, so having easy, cheap meals is a plus. I was going to make this with chicken, but he's vegetarian, so I switched that out for beans.
1 c brown rice
1 can pinto beans
1 can coconut milk
1 c water
2 t curry powder
1/2 c peas
salt and pepper
Combine all ingredients except for peas into the crockpot. Cook on low for 4 hours, adding the peas in the last 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
