Crockpot Vegan Stuffing

This was the best vegan stuffing I’ve ever tasted. Even the meat eaters loved it and commented that the mushroom gave it a wonderful texture. I adapted this recipe from one I found somewhere on the internet. I wasn’t exact on the spice measurements (meaning I didn’t level off the top of the measuring spoon).

Fall Pumpkin and Lentil Stew

A delicious Fall stew you can make in your crockpot or in a regular saucepan.

Mixed-bean Casserole with Sausage

This comes from the McDougall newsletter. I made this in the crockpot last Friday, and we are STILL eating it! It makes an enormous amount. The taste is similar to baked beans–we’ve been calling it “Sweet Beans.” It’s good, but it’s more like a side dish, so don’t make it unless you are feeding a crowd, are planning to freeze some, or can figure out a way to halve the recipe.

Spiced Butternut Squash and Lentil Soup

Use fire-roasted crushed tomatoes, if available, to give this recipe a robust smoky taste. If time permits, make it in advance. It tastes even better the second day.

Vegetable Chili

Chopping the vegetables takes a little time, but after turning everything into the slow cooker, the machine does all the work. Serve over brown rice.

    • Mega Veggie Vegan Chili
      My husband’s birthday was last Friday, and I thought I’d be sharing his birthday cake (a carrot cake) with you rather than veggie chili, but in cooking (as in all things) it doesn’t pay to take things for granted. The cake was not a success. It sank in the middle and was only edible because... […]

    • Circling In The Invisible Grass
      I don’t remember how old I was when I first heard the explanation of why dogs circle around before laying down, but my fascination with the enchanting instinct to tamp down invisible grass has stayed with me all of my life.
