It’s the first day of fall, making it the perfect day to bust out the crock pot and cook up this seriously amazing soup!
I couldn’t think of a more perfect recipe to share on Meatless Monday than this Black Bean Quinoa Taco Soup! This soup is not only vegetarian, it’s also vegan… and most importantly, it’s so delicious!
When I first heard about the Wonderbag, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one to try it out! A slow cooker bag that saves me time, money and all-important stove space? I’m in!
The Wonderbag uses revolutionary insulation technology to cook food that has been brought to a boil on the stovetop for up to 12 hours in the bag. No more heavy slow cookers that have to be plugged in. Cooking with Wonderbag saves energy, which means it also saves money and helps the environment! The bag is lightweight and attractive (bonus!) and can be placed anywhere while continuing to cook your food inside.
