Weekly Giveaway: The Two-Week Wellness Solution by Tess Challis! veganola wins!
You know what's the most awesome? When one of our own goes big time! I'm talking about the amazing Quintess (http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=profile;u=69134), and her new book, The Two-Week Wellness Solution: The Fast Track to Permanent Weight Loss and Vitality (http://ow.ly/2eEyd). Quintess has been a VegWeb member since early 2007, and has contributed so much to the site, I can't even begin to explain her awesomeness. Not only that, her recipes and insight are two of the things that make VegWeb such a fantastic place to be. Her book is a reflection of her fabulousness, <em>and</em> filled with delicious recipes, tips, and eating plans to help us all live the healthiest, happiest life possible. To boot, there's a completely inspirational forward from Dr. Neal Barnard. Yay Quintess!

Giveaway ends on Tuesday, July 27th at midnight, PST! Winner will be chosen at random!
I once cooked a pot of very nutritious and delicious mixture of beans - red beans, soya beans, black beans, green beans and kidney beans. It was something like soup / stew but sweet, not savoury. Good for anytime of the day.
I do not use the slow cooker as often as I would like to but have been seriously thinking of using it to prepare meals for the family at least once a week. Just have to find some easy and yummy recipes to try out ! :)
Taj makes a bean, veggie, qunioa soup for Kea every couple days and its the main thing she eats. (which is awesome because its so healthy!) My new thing is seitan in the slow cooker, (thanks to WML,) AND Tess's creamy aduzuki beans! Yummmmmmy
A variety of veggie and lentil soups, plus super spicy chili!
your crock pot seitan recipe! duh laura <3
I love rice and beans..or anything beans. Or soup!
I love my slow cooker.
I have two faves: vegan cholent, which is a Jewish beef/bean stew, and baked beans, but that recipe hails from Vegan Lunchbox. It is so good!!!
Split pea soup-1 bag dried split peas, 6 cups water, diced onion, green bell peppers,carrot and celery. Cook on low for 8 hours-stir occassionally. Season to taste. Service with warm crusy bread. YUMMY
so far, veggie chili!
My favorite is any vegan stew with loads of vegetables and beans.
I love to make what I call a Mexicalli Bean Stew, no recipe, just as many different beans as I have on hand,fresh peppers of different kinds, fresh chopped and sauted onions and garlic, tons of herbs and spices and close to the end chopped fresh tomato (if I am feeling like we need some extra nutrition, I'll add other fresh veggies like celery, carrots, corn etc, about midway thru). In a fitted pan at the top, above the stew, I bake potatoes at the same time to use as a 'base" to ladle the stew onto. Add a slice of jalapeno corn bread...ummm
Vegetable Stew with LOTS of potatoes! =)
Savory and thick vegan gravy so I can eat biscuits-and-gravy all day long! Full of nutritional yeast and soy milk and deliciousness!
I am not entering the contest because I already own this book (and Tess's other cookbook) - but I just wanted to say that it RULES!! The recipes are truly amazing, and Tess's writing style is so cute & charming. :)>>>
I love to make vegan chilli in the slow a cooker.
I like making chili as well. Nothing as good as cincinatti style chili on a cold day.
@JessaCita: You are SO sweet!! xoxo
@Everyone else: You guys are a chili-lovin bunch...Good thing there's a chili recipe in this book! :)
