One of my clients makes this dish in her slow cooker in the morning so that dinner is ready to go when she gets home that evening. The portobello mushrooms add a meaty texture and the rice makes it a hearty meal!

2 onions, finely chopped
4 carrots diced
4 stalks celery diced
4 cloves garlic chopped
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp sea salt
1 jar, 28 oz tomatoes
3 portobello mushrooms stemmed and cut into small squares

BPA free canned beans for any bean option)
1 cup dried red kidney beans, cooked
1 cup dried chickpeas, cooked
1–2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped

You can saute the vegetables and spices first in the oil or if you’re short on time, add everything
to the slow cooker at once and cook on low for 8–10 hours or on high temperature for 4–5 hours.
Add the rice during the final hour.
