I'm telling you that this dish doesn't taste like you're on a diet. Having tomatoes and mushrooms as free vegetables makes this meal possible. This recipe results in four servings.
- 4 zucchini - 16 oz total
- 1 pound ground chicken or lean beef
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms. Vegans can chop up the mushroom in small pieces to help thicken the sauce
- 2 Cans of Tomato Puree (sugar free)
- 1 Can diced tomatoes
- 1 Can tomato paste
- 2 packets of Stevia
- Minced Garlic
- 1 Bay leave
Spiralize the zucchini. You can warm the zucchini by boiling them in hot water for just a short period of time.
Each of the spices probably should be less than 1/2 a teaspoon, but I will leave this up to your personal tast.
Put all other ingredients into a crock pot and cook for 2 hours. If you prefer, you can also throw your zucchini into the crock pot instead of boiling it.
This freezes well and can be reheated for future meals.
