Slow Cooker Stuffed Veggies

It’s almost November so time to pull out the slow cooker and get the healthy comfort food started! This one was definitely a hit in my house. The smell of peppers, tomatoes and potatoes just filled the house. The blend of flavours and textures was amazing. I can’t begin to tell you how good this was! Try it out. So easy to prepare too.

2 baking potatoes diced in inch pieces

1 tbsp canola oil

4 medium vegetables, cored (un ripe tomatoes, peppers, even can use zucchini if cut the right height)

1 & 1/2 cup rice

1 tsp garlic powder

Pinch of salt

Pinch of pepper

1 pound ground meat (can use chicken or beef)

1 jar Gefen Pasta marinara sauce

1 equal jar of water

Pour canola oil in bottom of slow cooker. Add diced potatoes to cover the bottom. In a separate bowl add rice and combine ground meat with spices. Combine. Line cored veggies over potatoes. Fill with rice/meat mixture. Cover stuffed veggies with marinara sauce followed by a jar of water. Cover and turn slow cooker to high. Cook 5-6 hours or until meat is done.

I served mine in bowls with potatoes on the side.
