Tips

This is one of my favorite freezer crock pot meals.

I use my food processor to chop onions in a huge batch and sautee all together. I add those to a big freezer bag with chopped carrots, peppers, and tomato. I brown the meat and put that in a separate smaller freezer bag, and put the meat bag into the vegetable bag. In the morning I put the meat into the microwave to defrost for about 2 minutes (on my microwave, yours will vary) and throw everything into the crockpot except the cumin and dill.

Sometimes I make this exact same soup subbing chicken for lamb, or a vegetarian version with yellow lentils.

***Warning - It is recommended not to cook frozen meat in the crockpot.


Directions

1. Heat oil in a pan. Once heated add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic and stir until garlic is heated.

2. Add meat and cook until slightly browned.

3. Add vegetables, water, cardammon, cinnamon stick, and cloves. Add oats.

4. Either turn on the crock pot for about 7 hours or the stove on low boil for about 40 minutes.

5. Add cumin and fresh dill and let cook for another 1 hour in the crockpot or simmer for 20 minutes on the stove.

Serving Size: Makes about 8 1 cup servings with 8 cups of water.

Number of Servings: 8
