It may be too hot to cook, but you still have to eat. I keep my kitchen cool by making dinners in my slow cooker and so can you. I have 4 Vegan Slow Cooker Dinner Recipes that are perfect for this time of the year.
Slow Cooker Eggplant Tapenade makes a perfect light dinner and it uses up the fresh tomatoes and eggplants that you may have in your garden. Just pick up a loaf of fresh bread, make a salad and call it a meal.
I love having these Slow Cooker Lentil-Quinoa Tacos on the deck after the sun finally goes down. I make them for dinner parties and set up little bowls of garnishes so everyone can dress theirs up the way the like them.
I put out at least 3 kinds of salsa, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped summer squash and some fresh sliced hot peppers. Add in a pitcher of frozen margaritas or limeade and it’s a meal all your friends will love.
I love Indian food anytime of the year. You can make these Vegan Slow Cooker Creamy Indian Lentils and Kidney Beans and cook up some brown basmati rice in your rice cooker to create a complete meal with almost no effort.
One of the best ways to use up the abundant produce is this Slow Cooker Summer Pasta Sauce with Fresh Basil. This is full of tomatoes, eggplant and bell peppers – all of the goodness of the season that you can find in your garden or your local farmers market.
