Cozy Crock Comfort

  • 16 ounces ground 90% leans turkey or beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cups (15 ounces) diced raw potatoes
  • 1/3 cup (1 ounce) uncooked regular rice -- * see note
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup finely diced celery
  • 1 1/2 cups Healthy Request tomato juice or any
  • reduced-sodium tomato juice
  • 1 (10 1/4) can Healthy Request Tomato Soup
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

If you haven't yet dug your Crock-Pot out of the attic, I bet this recipe will make you do it
today! It's a perfect slow-cooked dish, ready to serve in minutes after the busiest day, and it's
especially handy if your family doesn't always mange to sit down together at the table. This
way, the food stays cozy-warm but doesn't get over-cooked.

1. In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, brown meat. Place browned
meat in a slow cooker container. Add onion, potatoes, uncooked rice, carrots, and celery. Mix
well to combine. Stir in tomato juice, tomato soup, black pepper, and parsley flakes. Cover
and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Mix well before serving. Serves 6 (1 cup). Freezes well.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
