Love this. I enjoy a good crock pot meal for days I know lead to 'processed' dinners if I don't plan well. Where do you get your veggie broth powder? I was getting it at Sunflower but their bulk sections been disappointing lately.

Keep up the awesome posts, I look forward to them all. :)

Kat: If you click on Vegetable Broth Powder on the recipe it will take you to a recipe for Veggie Broth Powder! I make my own it saves us lots of money and it's better then anything else I have tried. Also because I make it I know exactly what's in it!

Just made this for dinner tonight:) Yummy! My husband came home and said "man what smells so good" ? He was wanting to go down to the causeway to go fishing and grill hot dogs, but instead, we were able to bring this and have a picnic at the park! Yay! I didn't have to sacrifice a whole day of eating healthy because I already had this made! So easy too! He really liked it, but he did say, "this would really be good with some big chunks of beef in it" LOL. Thanks for another great recipe!!

We made this the other night for the first time! I doubled the batch and it fed my family of 5 huge eaters, plus there was so much leftover that we've used it as the 'meat' for our tacos for two full meals since then. It's absolutely Delicious!!
Thanks for the great recipe!
