Vegetarian Enchilada Casserole 2

Recipe Adapted from: Best Slow Cooker Cookbook Ever: Versatility and Inspiration for New Generation Machines


Vegetarian Enchilada Casserole

1 can crushed tomatoes in tomato puree — (28-ounce)
1 can chunky salsa — (14 1/2-ounce)…


Sweet-And-Spicy Garbanzo Stew

This dish can easily be made in a slow cooker. Add all ingredients at once and cook on the high heat setting for 8 to 10 hours. Be sure to soak the beans overnight before you begin.


Sun-Dried Tomato Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

1 1/2 cups chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1 medium onion, chopped…


Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

1 pound dried split peas
1 leek — rinsed & chopped…


Spicy White Bean and Sweet Potato Stew with Collards

This stew is colorful and full flavored, thanks to a host of vegetables and seasonings. I like to cook the collard greens separately to avoid any bitter taste in the stew. Because sweet potatoes break down easily, it’s important not to cook this stew too long. For a mild, yet still flavorful, version, eliminate the hot chile.


Pumpkin and Pinto Bean Chili

Butternut or other winter squash may be used instead of the pumpkin. This can be made either in the crockpot or on the stove.


Southwest Pinto Beans

Lots of great veggie burritos!


Sloppy Lentils

Meaty lentils are featured in this vegetarian version of Sloppy Joes. Serve on toasted rolls with a fresh batch of coleslaw.

1 teaspoon mustard…


Roasted Veggie Trio Pot

Quick and Easy Stew

For those of you who own crockpots… Made this last night and it was great and so easy!
