Crockpots make preparing warm and hearty meals so much easier. It just makes sense to let dinner cook while you work, run errands, or simply get things done around the house with these fabulous Vegan Crockpot Recipes. We’ve even included a couple of crockpot cake recipes as a bonus!
I use my crockpot all year round for soups, stews, vegan bbq, and even cakes. It actually saves time to be able to whip up delicious meatless meals all in one place. If you love your Instant Pot, we have a whole list of Instant Pot recipes as well. We love one-pot meals!
Why I love vegan crockpot recipes…
Don’t have to be home to cook
No stirring required
No need to heat up the oven
All of us have more to do than being chained to a stove, and these healthy, oil-free vegan crockpot recipes will free you to do the day-to-day things that need to get done.
InstantPots are fabulous too for quick cooking, and we have a whole page of Instant Pot recipes for those in a hurry, but sometimes you just want the meal to cook slowly over a long period of time when you’re not going to be home. I absolutely love coming home to a house filled with delicious smells of dinner cooking and almost done.
Meatless crockpot recipes
This list of meatless crockpot recipes includes chili and soups, barbecue, and even a chocolaty dessert. For even more great recipes, check out my Vegan Crockpot Recipes page.
For most of these recipes, I use a 6-quart Crock-Pot. Oftentimes, I make double-batches for freezing or taking to gatherings and use an even larger slow cooker, because I have a number of different sizes.
When I’m making my crockpot carrot little smokies, they are more of an appetizer and so I use my smaller 2-quart crockpot. I’ve even found that it is perfect for making a single batch of bbq soy curls for sandwiches.
Cooking for large events and crowds requires a larger 8-quart crockpot and I tend to use mine when I’m making chili for family get-togethers.

Dessert in a crock pot or slow cooker is a lovely thing. No need to heat up the kitchen and a fabulous dessert is warm and waiting to eat when you are ready. This Crock Pot Lava Cake is simply amazing!
Barley is not only delicious but adds an excellent source of soluble fiber which reduces blood cholesterol levels. This soup is great with cornbread (recipe link included). Soup recipe adapted from Dr. Neal Barnard of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
