Well, the temperature dropped below 80 this weekend so I'm craving stew! This one sounds really tasty, I love mushrooms!
Weight Watchers Mushroom and Wild Rice Slow Cooker Stew
POINTS® Value: 4
Preparation Time: 17 min
Cooking Time: 420 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Browning the vegetables in this one-pot meal brings out their natural sweetness. The extra work is worth the flavor boost.
* 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
* 2 cup leek(s), finely chopped, white parts only (about 2 large leeks)
* 2 cup shiitake mushroom(s), sliced
* 1 cup carrot(s), diced
* 3 cup vegetable broth
* 1 tsp table salt
* 1 cup uncooked wild rice
* Heat oil in large nonstick skillet. Add leeks and mushrooms and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. (Note: If you’re in a hurry, skip this step and simply add all the ingredients directly to the slow cooker.)
* Spoon leeks and mushrooms into a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Add carrots, broth, salt and rice; cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.
