Crock-pot Pilaf from Hallelujah holiday recipes

I liked the flavor of this and I cooked it on low for about 6 hours which was really too much in mine--a little gooey--but very nice flavor. We added after cooking some Chinese 5 spice and some salsa--so lots of ways to mix it up!

This is for a four quart crock pot.

2 & 1/2 cups water or vegetable stock
16 ounces tomatoes peeled and chopped (or salt-free tomato sauce
1 medium ripe bell pepper seeded and chopped
1 large clove garlic (or 2 small) peeled and minced
2/3 cup ripe black olives sliced
1 & 1/2 cups raw (uncooked) Basmati rice
2 tsp All purpose seasoning
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt

optional: Chinese 5 spice seasoning and salsa

Place all ingredients in crock pot and stir well. Cover and cook on low 6-9 hours or high 3 hours. Serve with a heart salad and bread if desired. Serves 3 Can add salsa chinese 5 spice at the end or green onions and sour cream etc
