30 Cozy Vegan Slow Cooker Recipes

If I could pick the most neglected appliance I own, it would be my slow cooker. The poor thing is just collecting dust in the cabinet. Which is ironic, because it’s legit the easier kitchen appliance to use EVER. It pretty much does all the work for you. All you have to do is turn it on and dump in your ingredients!

Why am I so mean to something that loves me so much?! I mean honestly, I’ve completely friend-zoned my slow cooker, but not anymore! My current goal is to get through all of these vegan slow cooker recipes this fall and winter, so my slow cooker should be feeling all warm and tingly (literally) inside with love.

Slow cooker recipes are the BEST because:

  1. They basically cook themselves.
  2. You can “cook” while you’re not even home or if you’re sleeping.
  3. You can freeze the extras for quick meals in the future.
  4. They make you feel all warm and cozy even when it’s freezing outside.
  5. You can transport food directly in your slow cooker, making it the perfect solution for potlucks, tailgate food and holiday recipes.

Have I given you enough reasons to dust off your slow cooker this season, or buy one if you’re currently lacking?? I hope so.
