Ingredients

1 sprays cooking spray, (5 one second sprays per serving)
1-1/2 medium leeks, chopped OR 1 large, white part only, finely chopped
1 Hungarian pepper, cored, seeded and finely chopped (or an Italian pepper)
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, or 1 jalapeño pepper, cored, seeded and minced (do not touch seeds with bare hands)
1 large celery rib, trimmed and chopped
2 cups (1 8 oz. pkg.) mushrooms, sliced
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
4 cups cauliflower, florets
1 can (15 oz.) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (15 oz.) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 tsp. dried oregano, crushed
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. table salt
2-1/2 cups fat free chicken broth, or vegetable broth (I just used the enitre carton)
6 slices jennie-o extra lean turkey bacon (the kind that is 20calories a slice)
pickled jalapenos and carrots.


Coat a large nonstick pot with cooking spray. Add leek, Hungarian pepper, red pepper flakes or


jalapeño pepper, celery, mushrooms and garlic. Sauté over medium high heat until golden, stirring


frequently, about 5 minutes.


Spoon mushroom mixture into a 5 quart crock Pot.


Add cauliflower, beans, oregano, cumin, chili powder, pepper, salt and broth.


Cover and cook on LOW heat setting for 7 to 8 hours.


Just before serving place bacon on paper towel and microwave on high 2-4min until crisp, crumble, remove 1 cup of solids and about 1/4 cup of liquid. Place in blender and puree.


Return to crock pot and stir.


Yields about 1 heaping cup, plus jalapenos if desired and one slice of crumbled bacon per serving at 3pts per serving.


I didnt do the last part and it was just great anyway. It's funny that the cauliflower breaks up during cooking and somewhat resembles ground beef, there is also a cabbage smell from the crock-pot but it does not taste that way at all.


A nice piece of low fat (2pt) cornbread is a great side dish.

I tried it for the first time last week, and it was fantastic!
