These vegetarian slow cooker meals are hearty, healthy and satisfying.
A few weeks ago I used my Crock Pot for the first time – after owning it for 8 years – and was immediately obsessed. An appliance that will actually make my family dinner while I’m at work? YES.
Why hadn’t I given this thing a whirl before? Because I always associated slow cookers with meaty meals — things like pulled pork, beef stew, sloppy joe’s — meals I eat only on occasion. I didn’t realize how many amazing healthy, vegetable-based dishes you can make in the slow cooker. But turns out, there are many.
Here are a few of the recipes I’ve tried so far – and that I have on my must-make list!

I had a similar Slow Cooker Taco Lentil Soup at a restaurant recently and found myself craving it and wondering if I could recreate it today.
