When it’s too hot to cook, sometimes we cave in and get take out. That’s fine until we start going over budget which takes less trips than you think. But what if you could have connivence and save money too?
I have 6 vegan crockpot recipes for you that will make you feel like you had take-out. Better yet, it cooks in your slow cooker all day while you’re at work so you come home to a ready to eat meal.
Indian food is my favorite to go out for and this easy Vegan Slow Cooker Creamy Indian Lentils and Kidney Beans is one of my go-to recipes.
Pair the dal with this Slow Cooker Navratan Korma, from Vegan Slow Cooking for Two, and you have an Indian Feast. It will also cost less than going to a nice Indian restaurant. You can also get more of my Indian inspired recipes here.
Craving Asian food? Start with this Corn Cabbage Soup from The Easy Vegan Cookbook. You can have it as a light meal, and it’s great if you have some fresh corn from your CSA. You could pair it with Vegan Instant Pot Asian Steamed Dumplings. If you do make the dumplings the night before, start the soup cooking in the morning, then steam the dumplings when you get home either on the stove or in your Instant Pot.
I don’t know about you, but I always get a craving for Slow Cooker Vegan Sweet and Sour Tempeh. It’s so easy to make, and it’s only sweetened with pineapple! If you have 2 slow cookers I recommend making the Slow Cooker Hot and Sour Soup to go with it too.
I have to tell you that I am all about this Slow Cooker Mole Mushroom Taco Filling. I have discovered cooking with dried chilies, and there’s no turning back. Use it in tacos, huaraches, on nachos or even scrambled with some tofu. Yum! Serve some slow cooker butternut squash frijoles on the side to impress your friends.
