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.
