Slow Cooker Mung Bean Pie [ vegan low fat ]

by Tina

I am loving my appliances, have collected a few and I will be writing about them or will be using them in recipes during the next couple of weeks. Always trying new to me techniques to make low fat tasty plant based meals for me and my family. Today I am using my slow cooker, I find it ideal on busy days when lot of stuff is happening, school, work, after school activities or sports. When time challenged I turn to my Crockpot. Food is ready when you need it, how great is that!

This recipe is based on sprouted mung beans and lots of veggies. Soaking and sprouting beans makes them easier on the digestion. Soak the beans for 12 hours or overnight, rinse well. I usually leave them in the sieve and place it above a bowl. Cover with a clean cloth and let it sit for about two days rinsing a few times a day until little tails appear.

I do stir fry the veggies first in this recipe to make it stick together while cooking. If you make a soup or stew in a slow cooker you can just add all the ingredients, turn it on and your off. I do soften onions if I use any in all the crockpot recipes.

Adding some oat flour and a mashed cooked sweet potato binds it and gives it a nice structure. I love to leave the veggies fine but not processed with the beans and such to keep a nice structure and bite when the dish is ready.

Using a slow cooker saves time and effort.  You can also make this in the oven but you will have to stay in the vicinity.

I used my homemade ketchup on top, also made in the slow cooker. I will post the recipe soon and link it here. The ketchup gives a nice sweet layer on top. It is sweetened with dried apricots instead of sugar.

Leftovers are just delicious the next day! You can heat it up or just add it to a wrap or salad.  Also  great with a nice creamy mash made of potatoes and cauliflower.  In the oven it only takes about 30 minutes.

Watch HERE how I make it! You find the complete recipe below.
