Crockpots make preparing hot 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 chocolate lava crockpot cake as a bonus!
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, but sometimes you just want the meal to cook slowly over a long period of time when you’re not going to be home.
This list 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. A picture of the one I own with an Amazon affiliate link is included below. 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.

No meat? No problem! This vegan black bean chili recipe has all the taste of a hearty chili and can be ready to eat in 15-minutes or less. The convenience of a three-ingredient dish without any greasy pans to clean.
I love soup for so many reasons! Not only is it easy to make and super filling, but it reheats and freezes well too. This barley vegetable soup recipe is also super healthy and loaded with wholesome ingredients. It can be a one-pot recipe for the stovetop or even made in a slow cooker.
Loaded with vegetables, beans, and warm spices, this White Bean Soup is perfect for a filling lunch or dinner. It’s vegan, oil-free, and filled with plant-based protein to help stay you full for hours.
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.
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!
Hi-- Just wondering what size crockpot should I use

Marie, if I'm only making one batch of a recipe I usually use my 6 quart Crock Pot. Oftentimes, I make double-batches for freezing or taking to gatherings and use an even larger size.

Not all of the recipes have crockpot instructions. For example, how do you cook the hash brown casserole in a crock pot?

Sally, thank you SO much for bringing this to my attention. I just published this article yesterday and completely forgot to add the crock pot cooking instructions to some of the recipes. Great catch on your part, and I really do appreciate it. All of the recipes should have crock pot instructions now.
