Read on – cook – enjoy!

I love cooking with my crock pot, it is so easy, just throw everything in the pot, turn it on, come back after work or whatever and dinner is ready. On a Vegan diet cooking with a crock pot is also very easy and delicious. I have a list of 25 different Vegan crock pot recipes. Yes, some of them are made with beans but some are also made with quinoa, lentils, rice, split peas, spaghetti, chick peas and couscous. There are also several recipes with different ethnicities such as Chinese, Mexican, Indian and good old American. They are not all Chili recipes either, there are recipes for tacos, a lot of different soups and even oatmeal. I hope you enjoy these recipes and let me know which ones are your favorite…read on…

1. Vegan Black Bean Soup Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesThis Vegan black bean soup recipe is made from scratch and rich with smoky flavor. Regardless of their nutritional value, having a family of 4 kids makes it vital that these beans are hidden and made in a fun and interesting way or they won’t be eaten.

I ALWAYS make this soup in a large batch because it can be used in tons of ways throughout the week. Try it:  as a soup; served atop nachos; drizzled on hotdogs; served as a taco salad; and even as a yummy dip for flatbreads! I absolutely LOVE serving this soup with my all-natural homemade tortillas and making your own tortillas is so easy to do. You should try eating my Spelt Flour Tortillas with this black bean soup…read on…

2. Three Alarm Vegetarian Quinoa Chili Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesI especially adore quinoa in chili – it helps thicken up the batch and adds another element of filling protein.

If you don’t have black beans on hand, this chili is equally great with pinto beans, or you might try kidney beans, too.

An unbelievably easy, protein-rich, and hearty chili to warm up the coldest of winter nights…read on…

3. Slow Cooker Curried Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesThis slow cooker curried butternut squash soup is made in the slow cooker, and is so easy to put together. I added spices to the squash, along with apples and carrots. You will need an immersion hand blender to puree it directly in the slow cooker, but if you don’t have one (I highly recommend them!) you can puree in the blender but please please let it cool a bit first and be careful while doing it.

I think a drizzle of roasted nut oil (such as roasted walnut oil) would be a nice addition to this soup. I wish I tried it! But, luckily this soup freezes very well so when I pull it out from the freezer I will have to remember to try it next time.

Regardless…you will feel so absolutely healthy after eating this soup. I promise…read on…

4. Slow Cooker Vegetable Quinoa Soup Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesFall is crock pot season in my house! Last week I posted the lentil mushroom soup, and I have another slow cooker soup for you today. I’m sure there will be many more through fall and winter. It’s just so easy to throw everything in, let it simmer all day, and have dinner ready when I get home from class!

For today’s soup, I started off by trying to convert this kale and quinoa minestrone from Cooking Classy into a crock pot recipe, but ended up tweaking the ingredients a bit a long the way. The result was awesome! It tastes fresh and light, but the beans and quinoa fill me up. I’ve had it for lunch every day this week (and sometimes dinner too!). It’s a big recipe, so you might want to make a half-size version if you’re not as into leftovers as I am…read on…

5. Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesBrowsing through my soups/stews page, all but one of my recipes in the category has meat in it. Now, we do eat a fair amount of good quality animal protein in this house, but we also eat a lot of veggies! I wanted to make a chili that has all my popular traditional chili flavors, but one that is meatless, packed with even more veggies, and a hint of Fall flavor!

Plus, you simply throw it all in your slow cooker overnight and have this perfect meal waiting for you when you wake up!..read on…

6. Slow Cooker Lentil Mushroom Soup Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesLast week’s weather was a little chilly and it finally started to feel like fall, my favorite season. The Southern summer heat has been killer, and I’m so ready to wear some scarves and jackets. Plus, fall means it’s time to bust out the crock pot. I know I professed my love for those little magicians in my slow cooker black bean burritos recipe post, but I am obsessed with slow cookers. I have three and try to use them during the summer as much as possible, but fall really lends itself to the crock pot and delicious soups and stews. I can’t wait to taste my old favorites and some new ones from Pinterest that I’m dying to try. For my first fall soup, I whipped up this lentil and mushroom number, which also happens to be vegan. It’s a great mellow soup with a lot of healthy and delicious vegetables…read on…

7. Crockpot Vegetarian Tacos Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot Recipes

School is back in, it is getting dark outside earlier… we are watching TV again, which means the Star Trek marathons have begun. All I can say is I find Star Trek far more entertaining than Sunday afternoon football. So far my kids agree with me – expecting this to change eventually, but for now, Star Trek gets more votes.

These Crockpot Vegetarian Tacos can help get you through the busiest of weeks. Any crock pot recipe for taco filling, actually. I have several versions and during the winter months I make them on a regular basis – they are easy to put together and are fairly forgiving about being left unattended for a long while. The hardest part about this particular recipe is peeling and chopping the sweet potato… read on…

10. slow cooker stuffed bell peppers Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesThere is something about winter time that makes me want to stuff everything – from squash, to tomatoes, to potatoes. Stuffing just seems to be the thing to do! Maybe it’s the fact that all the tasty is there in one delicious bite, with no need to try to get all the individual bits on your fork at the same time. They are also warm and comforting, and can be made in a slow cooker. Awesome.. read on…

11. Crock Pot Overnight Oat and Carrot Porridge Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesIt did not take me long at being  a mom to realize I should really use my crock pot. My day is so much easier when I do, but honestly I kind of miss cooking in the evening then. So, I don’t do it as often as I should. But, you know when I practically nearly never want to cook? The mornings!!!!

I have been trying to use that magical slow cooker to wake up to hot breakfasts. It seriously makes my mornings so much smoother. I know breakfast is already made and I feel far less rushed. I hate feeling rushed in the mornings, because no matter how rushed I feel I move at a snails pace… read more…

12. Crock Pot Recipe BBQ Baked Lentils Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesWhen you serve most canned baked bean brands you may as well put out a bowl of candy.  For example, in Bush’s Best Baked Beans, brown sugar and sugar are listed in the top 4 ingredients.  This means that other than beans and water the next largest ingredient is sugar!  How is that for summer heartbreak?

You don’t have to be in a diabetic coma all summer long.  I have come up with this easy recipe to have instead.  Just throw all the ingredients into a crock pot and you can get on with your intake of sunny Vitamin D.  Plus this means that you don’t have to turn on that hot oven.  Bonus!… read on…

13. Crock Pot Black Bean Soup Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesAfter a whirlwind weekend we are finally getting back into the swing of things!  My mom, Noah and I celebrated the holiday in Boston!  We did it all!  Boston Commons, the aquarium, the children’s museum and ate our way around the city!  Oh yea, I ran a half marathon too!  I ran with one of my closest friends, we had 2+ hours to catch up!  It’s sad we need to run a half marathon together to have time to chat!

After coming home from a fast-paced weekend, I decided to make a “slow” meal, cooked with the help of my crock pot!.. read more…

14. Crock Pot Mexican Rice or Spanish Rice Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesMexican Rice or Spanish Rice? What do you call it?  Some people refer to Mexican rice as Spanish rice, though. Spanish rice can include saffron, and often times there is cumin in Mexican rice. My dad is Mexican. I am half-Mexican. And we use cumin, so we call it Mexican rice... read on…

17. Slow Cooker Chipotle Tacos Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesMexican food is my favorite and to me it consists of any concoction encased in soft or crispy tortillas.  Slow Cooker Chipotle Tacos filling can be put in either kind so that is doubly wonderful for me.  The recipe is easy and has an unusual list of ingredients. You would never guess.  Get the ingredients all together, put them in the crock pot, turn it on and … that is it. After the cooking time has ended all you need to do is spoon it down the middle of a taco shell and eat it up… read more…

19. Slow Cooker Pearl Couscous Soup Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesBring it on! I can take all the cold weather you can throw at me if I have some delicious warm soups or chilies to warm me up from the inside out. Slow Cooker Pearl Couscous Soup is one of those treasures that is full of healthy, tasty and spicy ingredients. So easy too. The Crock Pot can be a savior. This brings me to another subject – My husband. He is a creature of routine and a reveler in ‘things remaining the same’. Ed has no security in this house. A plate of food may be coming his way but it very well may be a dish that he has never tried. I guess I know how to make a great bowl of soup though because he is always at ease when he sees the soup bowl coming. This one is an absolute keeper… read on…

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesRegardless of the weather, I have a delicious and easy soup for you. I’ve been making this hearty and flavorful recipe for years, and it couldn’t be easier!

I like my soup pretty thick, so I remove the lid at the end and let it cook for an extra 30 minutes or so.

This is a great ‘hands off’ meal for days when you have a few minutes to spare in the morning and not much leniency at night…. read on…

21. Crockpot Red Lentil Chickpea Squash Soup Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesDon’t we all wish that the weekend can drag on a little longer. So that we can walk around the house in our PJs, snuggle under a thick blanket and watch movie or any TV series all day long? At least thats how I feel now on a lazy Sunday afternoon hoping that the clock will just move a little slower. The only thing that makes this chilly autumn Sunday more comforting is this warm and healthy Crockpot Red Lentil Chickpea Squash Soup… Read more…

22. Hot and Sour Soup Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesI had a hard time deciding which recipe to test from the book–both the Pumpkin Lasagna and the Caribbean Mango Black Beans had me intrigued–but the decision was taken out of my hands when my husband saw the Hot and Sour Soup recipe. It’s a soup he’s been craving ever since he became vegetarian, and I just haven’t found a recipe he really likes. Kathy’s version, however, was a huge success. Though it wasn’t exactly what he remembered, it was so flavorful due to the long-cooking of the mushrooms in garlic and ginger-flavored broth–we both loved it… Read more…

23. Crock Pot Indian Food Chana Masala Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesEver since the new Indian restaurant opened down the street, I’ve been an Indian food junkie.  I wasn’t entirely new to Indian food; we’ve had it when traveling, but my experience was spotty at best.  Slowly, I’ve been working my way through the menu and hitting upon some favorites.  Among them, Chana Masala.  I recently made it at home in the crock pot and it’s super-easy.  Because the main protein in the dish is chickpeas, it’s also frugal –and healthy, too.  Definitely a win-win!… Read more…

24. Crock Pot Lentil Bolognese Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesLentil Bolognese cooked in a crock pot and ready to eat when you get home!  A healthy and simple weeknight meal!

Brown lentils provide a “meaty” consistency and the mushrooms lend an umami flavor making this a savory and satisfying meal for a cold winter’s night!

One nutrient essential for pregnancy is iron.  Pregnant women should aim for at least 3 servings of iron rich foods a day.    Lentils are a great vegan source of iron.  Other sources include quinoa, beans, blackstrap molasses, pumpkin seeds and spirulina.  Eating iron rich foods along with foods high in vitamin C help the body absorb iron.  In this recipe, high iron lentils are paired with tomatoes, which contain vitamin C.  A perfect combo!… Read more…

25. Vegan Crockpot Chinese Hot Pot Recipe

25 of the Best Vegan Crock Pot RecipesThis recipe was fun to develop. I have done a Wor Won Ton Soup a million times before but never a Hot Pot. I had a request for a vegan meal and thought this one would be perfect to make vegan. I like vegan meals but if I have a choice I always add cheese and then it becomes vegetarian. This meal of course didn’t need any cheese. The flavors abound in this simple and easy Vegan Crockpot Chinese Hot Pot.... Read on…
