pinto stew, biscuits

So, this was probably one of the brownest meals I have ever made but it was very delicious. I broke out the crock pot for this pinto stew. I started with about a half pound of dried pinto beans, 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks and an onion all chopped rather large. I added veggie stock, water, 2 vegan bouillon cubes, whole garlic cloves, sea salt, black pepper, oregano, chipotle powder, chili powder, cumin, a bay leaf and liquid smoke. I added 3 red potatoes and about 3 tbsp of tomato paste later on in the cooking. After about 6 hours on the high setting, this broth was super rich and the beans and veggies tender.

These biscuits came out of Vegan with a Vengeance. They are the Baking Powder Biscuits (pg.26) which were really easy to make. They weren't spectacular on their own (you have to know I grew up on my Grammie's biscuits which are hard to beat) but dipped in the pinto stew they were amazing. I will make these again.
