Slow Cooker Vegetarian Recipes
Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup
Use water in this soup instead of stock for a hearty vegan dinner.
Slow Cooker Mushroom Stroganoff with Egg Noodles
Using butter and olive oil together when sauteing the mushrooms is not traditional, but it adds a bit of richness to the stroganoff that you can't get from oil alone.
Vegetable Farro Stew with Figs and Pine Nuts
"I'm not a vegetarian," says chef Grant Achatz. "But at home I mainly eat grains and vegetables." His minimalist slow-cooker stew features farro, eggplant, artichokes and three kinds of pepper, and is sweetened with dried figs and raisins.

This flavorful long-simmered dish is a nice change from the usual quick sautes, and it's an especially good method for overgrown beans that can be a little woody.
Slow Cooker Indian-Spiced Red Lentil Soup with Swiss Chard
In this soup, fresh turmeric pairs up with cinnamon, cumin, and coriander to spice up red lentils and wilted Swiss chard. It's power-packed full of flavor and warmth and also subtlety sweet. To serve, add a dollop of yogurt for a bright, creamy, and cooling topping.
