Zucchini, Potato, Bean Casserole

I really like the flavor of the sweet potatoes in this dish.  I think the next time I make it, I will use all sweet potato and no white.  You can also use any bean that you like, rather than the kidney beans.

6 cups zucchini, sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 can corn including the liquid
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed 
2 Tbsp dried parsley
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 heaping cup celery, chopped
4 heaping cups sliced potatoes (I used both white and sweet)
1 cup vegetable broth
1 Tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos
1 tsp basil
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 heaping tsp minced jar garlic
1/4 tsp cumin
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Place mixture in a dutch oven (covered), and cook at 350 degrees for 60-90 minutes.  I cooked mine for about 90 mins because I like my vegetables REALLy well cooked and soft.

  1. You had me at zucchini - it is one of my very favorite veggies to eat and especially this time of year! Combining with a few more of my favorites - beans and potatoes (especially the sweet potatoes!) - I think I found myself a new recipe staple. Wow, this looks SO good Denise!

    1. SORRY Sally... I just realized I added another comment to respond to your comment instead of hitting "Reply"....

      LOL!!!!!!! THANKS Sally !!!!!! I REALLY liked the sweet potatoes in it also - rather than all white. At first I made it without the beans - but I just thought it was missing something. Then I added the beans - that made it complete !!!! I hope you like it Sally !!! THANKS for visiting the blog and leaving a comment !!!!!!! I REALLY appreciate it !!!!!! Denise
