A crock?


My stove died last Saturday. I've got a new one coming in 6 days. It's definitely strange not to be able to make, say, pasta, or stir-fries. I've been eating salads and frozen meals, mostly. I still have a microwave, toaster oven, and crock pot.

Does anyone have good vegetarian/vegan crock pot recipes? The ones I've found online by searching for "vegetarian crock pot recipes" are either shudder-inducing (Applesauce Sauerkraut), unclear on the concept (Vegetable and Beef stew) or just plain weird (Carrot Pudding, Turnip Custard).

I'm not sure if any good veg crockpot recipes exist besides bean and vegetable stews, but if you know some, please pass them along!

I know there are a few vegetarian crock pot cookbooks, such as "Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker".

Hope your new stove comes soon!

last xmas i got a cookbook called "125 Best
Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes"... the only problem is that the great majority of them require you to pre-cook your ingredients on the stove before adding them!!! i mean, doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose?

Hhhmmmmm. I wasn't planning to cross-post it but a recipe I just posted at my blog my work in a crock pot - how much power can those babies put out? Can they cook things faster than, what, a day or whatever it usually takes in a crock pot?
