The 6 Best Vegan Slow Cooker Recipes for Cozy, Lazy Nights

We all deserve easy, guilt-free vegan dinners that taste better than take-out. Slow cookers are the answer.

If you find yourself struggling day after day with staring blankly into the fridge after work, trying to decide which leftovers or frozen dinner you are going to pop into the microwave, slow cookers may just be the kitchen tool you need.

Like the more famous Crock-Pot, slow cookers are a one-pot stop to a delicious dinner. The slowness of the slow cooker is what helps create deep and full flavor profiles as the ingredients and spice stew together, often for hours. 

Slow cookers also have endless possibilities and can be used to cook everything from soup to overnight oats. It is no wonder that it has become a must-have appliance in many kitchens. 

These simple recipes are easy to throw together in the morning before you head to work, or even the night before.

1. Tomato Soup

I don’t think I really need to give you a little explanation of why we included tomato soup. I mean, it is a classic. And this version is no exception. To add the creaminess we all came to love as kids this recipe adds cashews. Now, will someone hand us a bowl and dairy-free grilled cheese, please!

2. Thai Pineapple Curry

Any dish with pineapple, coconut cream, garbanzo beans, and curry powder? We are in. Bursting with flavor and filled with healthy, filling ingredients this recipe is a winner. It is also an easy recipe to make in bulk and freeze for a(nother) cold and rainy day.

3. Vegan Cheddar Broccoli Soup

Another classic soup recipe, but it did take a while for the vegan blogger community to tackle this one. I went many sad years without finding a good recipe. Luckily, that is no longer the case. Also, this one is sure to be kid-friendly.

4. Jackfruit Stew

Anyone else obsessed with jackfruit? In my opinion, it is one of the best things to happen to vegan food in the last few years. The possibilities are endless and it pulls apart in a way that lends itself well to this stew. Here, it is also paired with celery root mash and we are adding this to our must-try list ASAP.

5. Coconut Rice Pudding

Who knew you could use a slow cooker for dessert? It really hadn’t crossed my mind until I came across this recipe on Pinterest a while ago. It had me intrigued. This simple, classic take of rice pudding is delicious but the ingredient options are vast.

6. Pumpkin Butter

Oh pumpkin butter, how I love thee. It may be winter but who doesn’t love the taste of fall all year round? And, have no fear, Rebecca has recipes for pear and apple butter linked here too, in case that is more your taste. Slather this on toast, homemade cornbread, or even banana bread. (We have recipes for that here.)
