The Vegan Slow Cooker for Two or Just You comes out tomorrow so will you join me in some overnight breakfast burritos to celebrate?

Sometimes even I need a change from oatmeal. Make this burrito filling right before you go to bed, and it will even let you sleep in. (Add extra water if you’ll sleep in longer than 9 hours.) If you have leftovers, prep extra burritos and store in fridge or freezer for busy weekday mornings.

    kathy i only have 1 slow cooker and it’s larger- i’m moving and was going to sell my slihtly smaller one as i have a smaller space. is there a way to “adjust” the cooker or the resipe to accommodate the recipes in your new book?

    • Kathy Hester says

      I know some people who have used a 2 quart pyrex dish in a larger slow cooker. You’d want to fill the cooker with water to about 2 inches below the pyrex. Some people have had mixed results but the people it worked for love it.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this book – I pre-ordered it from Amazon. Now all I have to do is pull out my Crock Pot, give it a rinse (it’s been a while since I’ve used it) and I’ll be ready to go!

    Hi Kathy–this is fantastic! I have been experimenting with making Burmese style chickpea or yellow lentil tofu, which I posted about on my blog recently. I usedit in this recipe. It’s softer than soy tofu, but gave this a creamy texture. I didn’t want to wait to eat it for breakfast so I made it at noon, cooked it on high in my little crock pot and ate for dinner on corn tortillas with fixins’. I will make it again. Thanks!!

    I’m excited to try this recipe out! Just one question – it says to add cooked onion (page 19). Could you please clarify if this done on the stovetop first or in the slow cooker before everything else is added? Thanks!

    • Kathy Hester says

      I usually saute a large onion and freeze it in ice cube trays to use in these smaller slow cooker recipes. So if you want to put it together now you’d need to saute them on the stove. Or you could leave them out or sub onion powder.

      I hope this helps!
