The Lazy Vegetarian

Friday

Recipe - Vegetarian Bratwurst Stew

A "not-quite-so-lazy" recipe. Takes about 30 minutes prep time. Recipe adapted from one I found on-line.

--crockpot--
1 package Boca Bratwurst*
1.5 pounds potatoes, any type, diced**
1 med onion, diced
1 can cream of mushroom soup (healthy version)
1/2 cup white wine
2 Tbsp canola oil
Fresh ground pepper to taste
1 box frozen green beans, place in refrigerator when starting recipe


Cook onions in 1 Tbsp oil, until tender. Cook bratwursts in microwave for about 2 minutes. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Using same skillet from the onions and the second Tbsp of oil, brown the bratwurst pieces. Layer ingredients in crockpot: potatoes, onions, bratwursts. Mix together soup and wine and pour on top. Add pepper. Cook on low for 6 - 7 hours. Stir in green beans. Cook 1/2 - 1 hour more.

Serve with fresh bakery bread and a green salad. Serves 3 - 5.

I thought this was delicious. My hubby said he liked it, but that doesn't mean that he'll want to eat it again. One can never tell with him. Note: He also said later that he would have put the green beans in to cook sooner. I prefer them crisy, but he wanted them softer.


*you may have to ask your local supermarket to get this one in, for some reason they tend to carry the Italian and Smoked Sausage varieties only

**being lazy, I leave the peels on - and, hey, that's more nutritious too

This was a wonderful recipe! I made this for dinner tonight and my carnivor hubby thought it was great! I did make one mistake. I doubled the recipe and thought I had 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup but I wound up with one can of cream of aspargus and one cream of mushroom.
It still turned out wonderful, though.
Now, I will say that I did add a little milk to it because it was just too thick for my taste.
I've never had a stew with any sort of bratwurst before and the Boca "sausages" gave it a very interesting and different flavor. The green beans went so well with this stew.
Great recipe!
