Does anyone have any vegetarian crockpot recipes? I'm not a veggie, but I have this small, wimpy crockpot that only heats on very low heat, so I don't feel safe using it for meat stuff... but I'd love to try some crockpot recipes...

I've tried a couple of crock pot recipes in the last week - both were excellent so I thought I would share here.

Slow Cooker Lentils
http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitche ... r-lentils/
This recipe makes a LOT. I served the lentils over rice.

Slow Cooker Melt In Your Mouth Cube Steak and Gravy
http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitche ... and-gravy/
This was excellent served over rice.

First of all, let me say- the Crock Pot is my new best friend... and when my DH came home smelling dinner today, he said, "I'm starting to LOVE this crockpot"

Here are some good recipes I have been using...

I'm so excited about this thread! Keep posting ladies. I usually love cooking but lately don't have the energy to stand for long. I love to put meals in the crockpot when I get a chance so dinner is ready by the time hubby comes home.

Easy Pork Loin

1 - 3lb Pork Loin
2 - Cups water *
2 - Chicken Bullion cubes *
3 - Cloves garlic (smashed)
Salt and pepper to taste

Dump everything in the crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours, high for 4.

Strain the broth and bring to a boil on the stove and add in some corn starch to make a quick gravy.


* You can use 2 cups of chicken broth instead of the water/bullion cubes.

Red Beans and Rice

1 pkg (16oz) Dry Red Beans (soaked in water overnight or boiled in 8C water for 10 minutes, then remove from heat, cover and let sit for 1 hour; drain)
1 lb ham, cut in 1" pcs.
3 Cloves Garlic, minced (or 1.5 tsp minced garlic)
5 Cups Water
4 Bullion Cubes (I use Chicken, but you can also use beef)
Cavenders seasoning, or your favorite seasoning mix to taste

3 Cups Minute Rice
3 Cups Chicken Stock

Place soaked beans, ham, garlic, water, bullion cubes, and Cavenders in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 5-6 hours. Smash some of the beans to thicken up the liquid. After beans are done, prepare Minute Rice using the chicken stock and a little Cavenders. Serve beans over rice with cornbread!
