Crockpot recipes are the quintessential week day meals for busy families. We have been stricter with meal prepping and the crock pot has helped tremendously. Not only are they easy and simple, but they often contain enough food for leftovers to be enjoyed the next day.
Here are some recipes that we have recently enjoyed:
- This Slow Cooker Enchilada Orzo is deliciously simple. We will definitely be making this meal again with a side salad. My advice is to not mix the cream cheese until instructed to do so and to add a bit of extra broth after a couple hours of cooking. Feel free to add spice to the dish if you like a little extra kick. It heats up decently well for lunch the next day too.
- I love this hearty Slow Cooker Tomato, Kale, and Quinoa Soup. The kale wilts beautifully and the quinoa soaks up all of the flavors of this super simple and yummy soup. It’s a great addition to any chilly day.
- If you are craving comfort food, you have to try this Slow Cooker Lentil Sloppy Joes recipe. Sloppy Joes are a meal that I grew up with and recently I have been wanting my childhood favorites – this is an awesome vegan alternative. My brother even loved them! I ate mine as an open-faced sandwich and we had plenty for leftovers.
There are so many amazing options for easy vegan dinner recipes online. Do some research and got cooking! It’s Veganuary (Vegan January) and there has never been a better time to join a healthier and cruelty-free lifestyle.
