Veggie Stew with Cornbread Dumplings

Jane Whittaker


No, I don't only use my crock pot, but it sure comes in handy! When you couple that with a disposable liner it is a match made in heaven because there is no clean up either.
This is vegetarian, but has a nice flavor. I have 3 vegetarians in my family and 2 of them are vegans. For the vegans you need to make a few changes in the dumplings.
It is hearty and delicious, and you really will not miss the meat.
My daughter in law kimmie fixed this for me and it was so good I just had to have the recipe.
