My Daughter's Crockpot Recipe This Week- Vegetarian Sweet & Sour Mixed Bean Hot Pot


My daughter tried out a new recipe in a new cookbook this week. This time she went for a vegetarian dish. This recipe starts by making a roue with whole wheat flour, apple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, a little bit of butter, ketchup and shallots. Interesting sounding combination, right? Well it makes for a delicious sauce! The roue is the hardest part of the recipe. Otherwise she assembled a variety of beans- garbanzo, cannellini, lima and fresh green beans and mushrooms. Then after the beans cooked for a few hours, she thinly sliced potato, sauteed them in a little oil in a cast iron skillet until they were browned, and then placed them on top of the beans to cook an additional couple of hours. It looked beautiful, as you can see by the photo, and it was very tasty. We had a guest for dinner and he gave my daughter the ultimate compliment, he asked for seconds! It is a definite repeat.

I found a similar recipe on line for those who would like to try this recipe- Sweet and Sour Mixed Bean Hot Pot
