Talk about an easy meal, I plopped the meal out of a bag and placed it in the crockpot. Put the brown rice in a rice cooker and set its timer.


The one thing I did different:

The last 15 minutes I topped the crockpot meal with 4 cups of fresh shredded vegetables:

            Carrots, cabbage, collard greens, zucchini, and sliced fresh mushrooms.

I mixed them in before serving so they were wilted, but crisp and fresh. After it was finished I topped it with fresh cilantro and basil. Served over brown rice, this is a gourmet, healthy and delicious  one dish meal.
