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
  • One-pot meals
  • Easy cleanup
  • No need to heat up the oven

Time-saving recipes

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.

Crockpot sizes

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.

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

    1. 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.

    1. 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.
