Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes
If you are looking for vegetarian slow cooker recipes that are delicious and healthy, we've got them right here.
You can cook a wide variety of vegetarian dishes in your trusty crockpot or slow cooker. Flavors of the beans, root vegetables and other ingredients are enhanced and released through the gentle slow cooking.
You can be creative with your dishes and try new beans or vegetables currently in season.
If you're adding delicate vegetables such as cabbage, spinach or herbs like parsley, make sure you add them at the end of cooking time, about 30 minutes before you are ready to eat.
You can use canned beans for recipes that call for beans. Otherwise, you should try to soak the beans in cold water for at least 8 hours or preferably, overnight.

- Black beans, small red beans and Great Northern beans - approximately 4-5 hours
- Pinto beans, navy beans - approximately 5 to 7 hours
- Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans - approximately 9 to 12 hours.
