I had a lot of pumpkin puree, so I looked for some recipes. I love how you can place everything in the crock pot and then forget about it. It has a very different taste, and plenty of spice. We couldn't find fava beans, so I used garbanzo beans, and they tasted really good! I couldn't even taste the veggie meat, but it's healthy and was definitely in there! This tastes good on a cool fall or winter night.



Yummy!!! Didn't have Broccoli or spinach and after it had simmered decided to just leave the vegetarian ground beef crumbles out cause we loved the flavor already!!! Will make again and try it with broc & spinach!



This could be an awesome dish with a few tweaks. I had trouble mixing the ingredients because there simply wasn't enough liquid - I ended up adding 8 cups of water just to get the ingredients to mix. I couldn't find fava beans in my area so I substituted butter beans. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice in the house so I made my own from nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and clove, making sure to use only 1 TBS of my spice mixture. I added double the chili powder. In the end, the dish was terribly underflavored. Adding salt at the table helped but wasn't enough. Next time I make this I will quadruple the chili powder, double the black pepper and add a bit of cayenne. I will also probably quadruple the amount of vegetable juice and add vegetable broth as well. Additionally I will add more spinach - we like spinach.
