Slow Cooked Vegan Molee

On Monday I told you about a dish I found in a slow cooker recipe book in my the kitchen. It was a Fish Molee and it was delicious. While I was making this meal I thought it would also make a great vegan dinner.

So during the week I decided that we should eat this Molee as a vegan meal. There have not been many changes to the original dish I made on Monday. The only real change was that I have left the fish from the dinner. Also I used vegetable stock but you could use chicken stock if you are not a strict vegan or vegetarian.

We like to have at least two or three vegan or vegetarian meals in a week. In the past few years we have cut back on the amount of meat we eat for meals. So I’m always looking for good vegan recipes. When I thought of this one I was very pleased and so glad it was a yummy dinner too.

Slow Cooked Vegan Molee

Vegan Molee was a simple dish that would feed a family but is also freezable too. So you can make a large amount and then freeze it in batches. My husband and son did not enjoy this as much as the Fish Molee but I thought it was a great dinner. However you decide to eat this dinner, as always, enjoy.
