What are your favorite simple “dump & forget” vegetarian crock pot recipes?(r/vegetarian)
Here’s a list that I keep posting anytime someone asks for vegetarian crock pot recipes. Not all of them are “dump & forget”, but all of them are great!
>sweet & spicy chili with that butternut squash – SO GOOD!
>quinoa stuffed peppers – sub TVP or minced seitan for the beef
>veggie lasagna – this one’s so good it’s in regular rotation! you can put pretty much any veggies in that you want. i usually get a bag of frozen squash to toss in there. or you can do just spinach. or whatever you like honestly
>tortilla soup – instructions aren’t for crockpot, but just toss it all in and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low 4-6
>french onion soup – this one requires some conversion to be vegetarian and crockpot friendly. i do the first step for caramelizing the onions in the oven, then transfer the onions to the crockpot for the rest of the instructions and then simmer on low for 3-4 hours. substitute not-beef bullion cubes and vegetable broth for the meat broths. traditional worchestershire sauce isn’t veg-friendly either, but there is a vegan brand out there somewhere (can’t remember the name right now)
>stuffed cabbage rolls. i added some TVP to the stuffing too, and it was great!
>aloo gobi – not written as a crockpot recipe, but just toss it all in and turn it on high. usually takes ~5-6 hours on high for the potatoes to get fully tender. if you use red potatoes, it might not take as long since those are more tender. not spicy at all, so i highly recommend adding some chilies, habanero, or ground spicy pepper if you want spicy!
>chana masala – i added some blackeyed peas i had in the freezer, and it was a great addition!
>eggplant parmesan – this one is excellent!
>mexican casserole – pretty good, but i still prefer making something like this in the oven (with crushed tortilla chips and cheese on top, which gets nice and crispy)
>scalloped potatoes – this one has a can of condensed soup in the ingredients, which i don’t like to do. but i’ve successfully subbed this from-scratch ‘cream of anything’ (with vegetable broth, of course)
>quinoa chili – so so excellent. the quinoa gives it a nice thick texture. the instructions aren’t for a slowcooker, but just toss all the ingredients in and let her cook on high 4ish or low 8ish hours.
>white bean and spinach soup – a hearty, delicious soup for cold winter days.
>another good and simple one is tossing potatoes wrapped in foil on top of whatever you’re cooking. rub them down with some olive oil and season with salt/whatever then wrap em up tight. works with regular potatoes or sweet potatoes.
>seitan – super versatile, but I like it best just sliced thin on cold sandwiches. Also pretty good chunked up in pot pies
>falafel – I haven’t tried this one yet, but it looks great!
>honey glazed carrots – haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds great!
