I’m on the hunt for some new slow cooker recipes to spice things up a bit! My husband eats meat so he likes a variety of “home style” recipes still. Wondering if you guys have any good, simple recipes that are either vegetarian already or could easily be substituted.

I substitute the meat for more beans! I also don’t sautée anything ahead of time…just throw the veggies, beans, and spices in there and let it cook all day while I’m at work!

I’m not a vegetarian but we do make vegetarian meals on occasion to save money, one of our favorites is chickpea, sweet potato and spinach curry, I prefer making it in a pot because it cools down more and gets thicker but I’ve done it in the crockpot too. There’s tons of recipes on Pinterest for something similar. I usually just use canned chickpeas with the liquid, onion, garlic, sweet potato and spinach, coconut milk, canned diced tomato and curry powder and garam masala.

Taco soup is great. I substitute the meat for more chili beans when making this recipe. It tastes and smells just like homemade tacos!

I’m a vegetarian and I get a lot of recipes from Pinterest. Just search vegetarian crock pot recipes and a ton will pop up.

Try the link below. I just take out the chicken and add another can of garbanzo beans. It’s so good and flavorful. The cucumber salad that goes with it compliments the flavors very well too.

Taco soup is a fav in our house, though I use a slightly different recipe.
I use this book a lot:
One favorite is Sloppy Lennies
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. prepared mustard
1 medium-sized yellow onion, chopped
1 tbsp. light brown sugar
1 small red or green bell pepper, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. chili powder
Freshly ground black pepper
1 (14.5 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
3 cups water
2 tbsp. tamari
Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add chili powder, stirring to coat.
Transfer the onion mixture to a 3½-to-4 quart slow cooker. Add lentils, tomatoes, water, tamari, mustard, brown sugar, salt, and pepper to taste and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
