    2 C water
    1/2 C lentils
    1/2 C cowpeas
    1/4 C quinoa
    1 clove garlic
    1/4 C onion
    2 tbs Bragg liquid aminos (can be left out - I use them for more protein after my workouts and in place of salt)
    4 Tbs nutritional yeast
    2 Tbs chili powder
    1 Tbs curry powder
    1/4 tsp cayenne (feel free to use more or less)


Feel free to add in things like green onions, potatoes, or use chicken or vegetable broth instead of water.


Pour all ingredients into crock pot and mix well.
I usually start my recipes out on high for 1-2 hours, then reduce to low.
Let cook for 5-7 hours.
Can be topped with plain, non-fat yogurt (try goat yogurt!), more nutritional yest, or even a little cheese.
