Vegan Slow Cooker Cassoulet

Last week I was craving a stew and had some homemade chik’n seitan, leftover Gimme Lean and lots of field peas in the freezer. This stew is what came out of that.

Slow Cooker Banana Pudding Oatmeal – Another Southern Dessert for Breakfast

Banana Pudding is a Southern favorite with a bottom layer of vanilla wafers, topped with very ripe sliced bananas and topped with vanilla pudding. This oatmeal is much simpler but has the main flavors of banana combined with an intense vanilla flavor.

Slow Cooker Vanilla Fig Oatmeal Topped with Baklava Filling
