This is one of those fantastic meals which you can chuck all the ingredients into the slow cooker and let it bubble away for hours without giving it any attention. It makes enough to feed a small army (or about 6-8 normal eaters in my family), which means there’s always enough left to freeze for a quick mid-week meal in the next couple of weeks. It’s packed full of great vegetarian/vegan protein, and if you’re not vegan, you can up the protein levels even further by adding a bit of cheese. I always chop up avocado, or make guacamole, and serve this with salsa and a drizzle of sriracha. This is a crowd pleaser, which pleases even the meat eaters in the house.
