Slow Cooker Beyond Meat Chili

Slow Cooker Beyond Meat Chili

I have to say this has not been my favorite week. We didn’t have power for 3 days and with our well that means no water too. I now know that I haven’t appreciated water piped in the house nearly enough. Then yesterday the power went off again while I was working on a tight deadline. I put on my big girl panties, packed up my stuff and drove to the closest coffee shop.

Guess what? Their internet was down and by the time I got a drink the power was back on at the house. I’m starting to think that something is out to get me. Of course, I know that’s not the case. By the end of the day I was almost caught up with work and  found a vegan cherry pie on my trip to Whole Foods. The week is finally turning around!

Slow Cooker Beyond Meat Chili

With the cold weather that just keeps coming back I’ve been making lots of chili, which is a perfect winter food. Beyond Meat sent me a few samples of their new crumbles and it was perfect for some chili experimentation. It worked great in the slow cooker and took cooking all day in stride. I can’t wait to try it in more slow cooker dishes.

I had some of the feisty crumbles that I took a taste of. They were good and spicy. Unfortunately  lost them in the power outage and I’m hoping they will get them in to my area’s Whole Foods soon.

  1. That looks delicious. I’d totally try that out with some Beyond Meat in the crockpot. I’d also use the crumbles in some soft taco creations.

  2. I love this recipe, and have been looking for a use for my remaining nutritional yeast!

  3. I would make Shepherd’s Pie, or a meatless loaf.

  4. Probably chili, like you, or tacos!

  5. I would like to try the chili, but would also love to try mking some mini-meatballs … love having small packs of those in the freezer as snacks with a good dipping sauce, or to quickly make swedish meatballs, or spaghetti and meatballs ..

  6. I usually use meatless crumbles for tacos and just have my chili with beans but I think this recipe looks tastier than mine.

  7. I would make tacos.

  8. I think I’d make tacos

  9. I would use the Beyond Meat crumbles for tacos, burritos, and chili. Yum!

  10. I would make Cincinnati Chili with the Beyond Meat crumbles.

  11. Keep the pieces very small and don’t crowd the pan.
    In addition, a hands-on cooking activity offers ESL students the opportunity to understand oral communication and pose spontaneous
    questions within a structured situation. Or, grill up some mango, peaches or bananas and
    then drop them over some fat-free vanilla yogurt for an easy yummy dessert, and still quite healthy.
