6 cups vegetable broth (homemade or canned)
2 cups tomato sauce
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup uncooked rice
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
7 cups spinach, chopped
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for garnish
Combine vegetable broth, tomato sauce, chickpeas, and rice in slow cooker. Stir in seasonings (you can add more or less of each depending on your specific tastes). Cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours or low for 5 to 7 hours.
About 20 minutes before serving, stir in chopped spinach. Split into bowls and top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese before serving.
Don’t have enough time to bake cupcakes from scratch, but want that nice homemade flavor? Well I discovered a trick to help make those box mixes taste a little better…milk! Replace the water with milk or a richer flavor. Want to make those cupcakes extra delicious? Substitute melted butter for the oil as well!
One of the most delicious foods I had the pleasure of trying in Holland was a pannekoek, a Dutch pancake. These pancakes are far different from American ones. They are not fluffy, but instead are thin like crepes. Locals fill them with fruits, meats, cheeses, or just top them with powdered sugar.
I tried the bacon and cheese pannekoek and it was AMAZING! If it were any bigger, I don’t think they’d have a plate big enough for it! The batter has a unique and deliciously fresh flavor, while the fillings were cooked perfectly. There was a perfect ratio of pannekoek to bacon and to cheese.
I finished off dinner with a traditional favorite…sprinkled with powdered sugar! There is something so wonderful about a food like this. It’s so versatile and, unlike most foods you eat out, doesn’t make you feel sick afterwards. I ate a LOT of food here, and I felt full and happy. No regrets!
So if you are ever in Holland…I would strongly suggest ordering up some pannekoeken! You won’t regret your decision.
I stumbled across this today as a “suggested post” on my Facebook news feed. I hope you enjoy!
