A couple of Vegetarian Recipes

Vegetable Soup

1 Can Tomato Juice (I prefer the vegetable cocktail, gives the soup some extra flavour, but you can use whatever you like.
1 Can of Corn
3 potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 cups of mini carrots, cut in half
1 onion, chopped
3-4 stalks of celery, peeled and chopped
1/2 head of cauliflower, chopped
1/2 carton of  vegetable soup stock

Add all ingredients to a crock pot or a big soup pot, season to taste

*Optional: Add one can of drained and rinsed lentils or chickpeas

Cook on high in Crockpot for 4 hrs or bring to a boil on stove top, reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender

Vegetarian Stir Fry

Stir fry potatoes or sweet potatoes( I like the sweet potatoes, adds extra vitamins), add some onions, zucchini, corn, peppers, garlic, whatever kind of veggie you like. At the end, when the veggies are almost tender, add the black beans and diced tomatoes. Add Cumin and chili powder( 1 tsp of each) while stir frying and also a pinch of salt and pepper. When finished, you can add cheese, ketchup, sour cream, yogurt, Tabasco sauce as a topping. For a change, you can add Tofu instead of the black beans

cooking time; 45 min- 1hr
