You don't have to eat meat to enjoy soothing aromas and flavor-enriched meals from the slow cooker. These recipes are strictly
vegetarian and are a tasty choice for a home-cooked dinner on a chilly winter evening.
Cuban Beans and Rice
Dried beans are inexpensive and a convenient choice for economical meals. They also lend themselves well to slow cooking because,
unlike on the cooktop, there is no risk of burning during the long simmering period. This meatless entrée reheats well the
next day for lunch. Store leftover bean mixture and rice in separate containers in the refrigerator.
The soothing aroma of fresh oatmeal makes this dish the ultimate comfort food. Savor happiness in a bowl with the flavors
of brown sugar, cinnamon, and maple syrup topped with chopped hazelnuts and apples.
Vegetable Pot Pie with Parmesan-Black Pepper Biscuits
Leaving out the chicken doesn’t make this dish any less filling or tasty. The medley of vegetables topped with a fluffy and
savory biscuit create phenomenal flavors and will appease every one in your family.
Butter-tossed breadcrumbs stirred in at the end give this dish a robust stewlike consistency. Meatless Italian sausage stands
in for the traditional pork sausage. With this recipe, you can also sauté the sausage slices in a nonstick skillet over medium-high
heat until browned, then stir into the dish.
