Crockpot Dinner Delight!

"As a child my family's menu consisted of two choices: take it or leave it." -Buddy Hackett

This recipe will be easy for you to make but your family will want to take it, for sure!

What you will need:

4 tofu steaks, cut into strips (please do not do this when they are frozen, microwave or thaw them some)
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 cup frozen vegetables
1 cup almond (or other vegan) milk
1 cup water
1 Edward & Sons Not-chicken bouillon cube
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
garlic powder, to taste
onion powder, to taste
sea salt & pepper, to taste (optional)

Rice or pasta of your choice

What you will need to do:
Place first 8 ingredients in crockpot and cook on Low for 5- 6 hours (on High would probably be 3- 4 hours). Just before ready to serve, prepare rice or pasta. Spoon crockpot mixture over rice or pasta and serve. Enjoy!

Recipe Tips:

-If you cannot find Tofu Steaks like Helen's Kitchen brand, you can use any other vegan protein like Gardein, Lightlife, Tofurky, Fieldroast, or Boca. Lightlife's Smart Strips Chick'n would work great in this recipe also!

-You can go ahead and add more Nutritional Yeast if you would like to thicken the sauce more or for a "cheesier" flavor.

-Alternatively, you can serve this over your favorite noodles (like soba or rice noodles), instead of rice or pasta. That would also be super yummy.
