A SLOW COOKER BEAN STEW INSPIRED BY SPANISH FLAVORS
Some delicious magic happens when you slow cook beans, tomatoes, garlic and onions. And while simple dishes are great because they’re easy to make, there’s nothing better than a stew that keeps the ingredients list short – and still some evokes the home-cooked flavors a Valencian grandmother (that we all wish we had) might evoke in a bubbling pot of her secret family recipe.
Warming spices like cumin and paprika mix with the herbaceousness of dried thyme to bring mountains of flavor to this comfort-food classic.
And aside from tasting amazing, this vegan bean recipe is a breeze to whip up in your rice cooker!
