Vegetarian slow cooker recipes without beans or soy products
Anyone know any good vegetarian recipes that can be made unattended in a slow cooker ? The catch is that it can't involve beans or soy products because of the potential for gout attacks.
I know you can slow roast cut-up vegetables. Anything else ?
i know this is sort of like cut up veggies, but Ratatouille goes nicely in the slow coker. (if you're not vegan, and can handle cheese, try dolloping some ricotta on top, or a grating of parmesan).
stews -- something hearty at the base like onions, butternut squash, sage, etc.
again, if not vegan, and can handle cheese, mac'n'cheese in the slow cooker works just dandy.
quinoa chili (instead of beans)
Corn and Quinoa Chowder
vegetable barley casserole
...lots to be done!
re: Veggie Liv
you can start with a favorite marinara sauce if you like. or blend crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic, onions, parsley, basil, oregano and S &P. (if you do soy, you can add tvp to this too for meatiness). i also add a little tamari to mine.
mix ricotta with egg, S & P, and a dash of oregano. mix separately mozzarella and parmesan.
layer in some sauce.
double layer of noodles, breaking if necessary to fit. dash more sauce.
toss in some veggies (sliced mushrooms, zucchini, spinach, broccoli, grated carrots, etc)
dollop ricotta. sprinkle with mozz/parm.
little more sauce.
noodles, sauce. veg. cheeses. sauce. noodles. sauce. finish with mozz/parm.
slow cook on low for 6-8 hours. serve garnished with parsley and/or basil.
switch noodles for sure.
okay a rough idea...
1/2-3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
1 - 1 1/2 cups water or vegetable broth, or more if more quinoa
1/2 cup strong coffee
1 bottle stout beer
1 cup diced cauliflower florets
1 cup diced asparagus
1 cup diced eggplant, optional
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup unsalted tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 celery stalk, diced
3-4 cloves minced garlic or more
2 Tbsp minced jalapeño pepper, seeded
1/2 green bell pepper, diced (i often omit)
1/2 red bell pepper, diced (often omit)
1 1/2 tsp cumin powder
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp paprika
1 1/4 tsp dried basil leaf
3/4 tsp dried thyme leaf
1/2 tsp dried marjoram leaf
1/8 - 1/4 tsp chipotle pepper powder
2 bay leaf (can use 1 if preferred, but i like it)
1 tbsp molasses
1 tbsp Braggs Liquid Aminos, or soy sauce
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
freshly ground black pepper
saute the onions, garlic, peppers, then stir in herbs and spices. add the rest combined in crockpot, except for molasses, bragg's, cilantro. cook 6-8 hours then finish with those three items and season to taste. you can add whatever veggies you like. and you can adjust seasonings to your taste!
Thanks for the ideas. I will try to google up some recipes.
In the meantime, if you have any recipes that you've tried and can recommend, please post them (or links to them). Thanks in advance.
Emme beat me to several of my suggestions :)
- savory oatmeal
- kasha (buckwheat groats)
After a concerted search mission, I find I can't lay my hands on the slow cooked version of the egg puff. I'm beginning to wonder if I left the original in the copier after I made copies for friends who attended a baby shower I gave. Time will tell.
As a peace offering, I do have a ton of slow-cooker recipes and would be so happy to share them. Please e-mail me and note your parameters (vegetarian, no red meat, whatever) and I'll send you the best of the bunch. Also I have a conventional oven recipe for the egg puff and if you'd like to have that, feel free.
Sorry about the crockpot version. It was very similar to the conventional recipe; it just called for starting high and ending low or vice versa, and I don't remember which.
Have a good day!
Peanut stew is one of my favorite crock pot recipes.
Toss in crockpot:
8 cups stock
1 onion, chopped
2 red peppers, chopped,
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 T chili powder or blend
1 t cumin
28 oz diced tomatoes (I used crushed fire roasted)
1.5 c lentils (or 1 c lentils, 1/2 c rice)
any other veggies you have laying around (potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, etc)
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4
Stir in 1 c peanut butter and simmer another hour.
Serve with sriracha if you like spice!
grits cook up nice and "creamy" in a crock pot. I'm opposed to actual cream in grits, mind you, but the long slow cook gives them a really nice texture. You could add cheese near the end, or just sprinkle on top for protein.
Sauteed wild mushrooms are also really nice over grits (sort of a veggetarian shrimp and grits)
