Slow Cooking Thursday

Like every other person in this day and age we are trying to stretch our food budget money. We are trying meatless suppers at least once or twice a week. This is one that we don't even miss the fact that there is no meat. Add some corn muffins/buttermilk biscuits.

Wheat Berry Stew

5 cups marinara sauce
1 1/2 cup Great Northern beans
1 cup wheat berries
6 small potatoes cut in half
1 large onion sliced (I dice them are people here who do not like onions)
4 garlic cloves minced
5 teaspoons ground cumin
3 teaspoons tumeric
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 green peppers diced

Mix together all ingredients in crockpot, adding water as needed to just cover. Cook at HIGH for 8 to 10 hours.
