I promised slow cooker ideas for Cinco de Mayo, so I started with Slow Cooker Southwestern Beef Brisket for the carnivores and now it's time for a meatless slow cooker dish with Mexican flavors. I'm a big quinoa fan, so this Slow Cooker Vegetarian Quinoa Mexican Bowl with Creamy Avocado Sauce from 365 Days of Slow Cooking sounds like a perfect dish for Cinco de Mayo to me. And this year that Mexican-food holiday does fall on a Monday, so this could be a great Meatless Monday option to help you celebrate.
Ingredients for this recipe:
- vegetarian bouillon (or use vegetable broth)
- diced onion
- canned diced green chiles
- diced red bell pepper
- canned black beans
- salt and papper
- Avocado Sauce: Ripe avocado, garlic, olive oil, fresh lime juice, minced cilantro, diced tomatoes, sea salt, black pepper.
