vegan and vegetarian slow cooker crockpot recipes

Baby it’s cold outside! Winter is here and that has us craving warm and cozy meals. Out with the salads and in with the soups. I recently heard that “souping is the new juicing” and I’m not one bit mad about it.  My short slow cooker videos over on Facebook have been my most popular, and when I asked for blog suggestions on Facebook and Instagram, many readers asked for vegetarian/vegan slow cooker recipes. So many of us want to eat well, but don’t have the time or energy to make a wholesome meal at the end of a long day. That’s where the slow cooker comes in! It’s so nice to come home to a warm, nourishing meal.

Though soups and meats may be the first things that come to mind when we think about slow cooker meals, there is so much more this versatile appliance can make! From cooking dried beans, to lasagna, to apple sauce and oatmeal, the slow cooker is a fantastic way to make inexpensive and healthy meals at home. Even when life gets crazy.
