It's not chicken (It's mock chicken!). And it's not vegan (It's vegetarian!)
I apologize for trying to deceive you. I shouldn't have (but yeah, it might happen again). The only reason I did it was because slow cooker chicken cacciatore sounded so much better than slow cooker mock chicken....or not chicken....and if I wrote chik'n it would have been a dead give away and possibly deterred people from giving the recipe a chance.
Do you forgive me?
I promise this dish is delicious (and naturally gluten free!). And I promise that I am not lying about that - If it sucked I wouldnt have bothered posting!
And tell me what you think :-)
1 tsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onions, chopped
1 can petite tomatoes, low sodium drained
1 Tbs tomato paste
4 oz. water
3 oz. red wine
2 Tbs fresh ground italian seasoning
1 green pepper, chopped
1 zucchini or yellow squash, spiralized (keep raw or blanche)
Wash and prep veggies as instructed above.
Add all ingredients (EXCEPT the zucchini or yellow squash) to slow cooker (I used a 2qt) and stir to combine. Cook on low for 4 - 5 hours (or on high for 2 - 4).
Wash and spiralize the zucchini or squash. Keep raw (as I did) or blanch. Serve in place of traditional pasta.
