This gluten free, dairy free, vinegar free recipe is one of my favorite to fix for any company and to have around during the work week. It has great, easy to find and healthy ingredients. Made in the crockpot. Can be ready for you to come home to (and smells incredible). Just pay attention to the canned/stewed tomatoes you pick up to make sure they are vinegar free. Also if you are concerned make sure there isn't any high fructose corn syrup in those canned tomatoes also. The more natural the better. This is great even with gluten free cornbread. Also, if you want to use frozen green beans get the steamer bag and steam them for a bit before you put them in the crock pot....they keep their flavor and color very well.
