Owning a slow cooker is basically like employing a private chef. Sure, you do the prepping in the morning by putting all the ingredients into the Crock-Pot or Instant Pot, but when you return home after work, there’s a healthy and delicious meal waiting for you—one you hardly remember putting together. Instead of trying to find the energy to cook yourself something after a long day, dinner is served.

Vegetarian slow cooker recipes are the easiest way to add more plant-based dishes into your routine. When you load it up with veggies and spices and let those flavors get to know each other throughout the day, you’ll be left with a final product that’s just as healthy as it is satisfying. And these cozy meals are a great place to start.
