Crockpot Grain Dinner

courtesy Chet's Crock

  • 1/4 cup millet, uncooked
  • 1/4 cup barley, uncooked
  • 1/3 cup brown rice, uncooked
  • 1 cup onions, chopped
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots, finely chopped/li>
  • 8 oz tomato sauce, salt free or reg
  • 1 lb canned tomatoes -- chopped, drained, reserve liq
  • 1 1/2 cup corn, canned or frozen drained
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 canned kidney beans, drained or any other beans, drained (This will yield 10 oz of beans)

Combine all ingredients in a crockpot. Add water to reserved tomato liquid to equal 2 1/2 cup. Stir into grain mixture. Cover and cook on low setting 8 hrs. Stir before serving. I just put all the dry ingredients in the crockpot the night before, in the morning all the wet ingredients and turn the crockpot on. By the time dinner rolls around, it is ready. This serves 8 as a side dish and 4-6 as a filling main course. You can use any combination of grains. Just use about 1 cupful altogether -- although I have used more then 1 cupful.
