I made this recently. AMAZING. The house smelled so good while it was cooking, I couldn't wait for it to be done

If you guys like tacos or burritos, they're super easy fast food. Even if you just buy canned whole or refried beans. You can add rice, if you want to - which you can even buy ready for the microwave in the freezer section at Trader Joe's.

And instead of chopping veggies, buy some cans of chopped tomatoes and chiles. The brand I see here, is Ro-Tel, in the hispanic section of the grocery store. And some tortillas. And if you guys eat cheese, throw in some cheese. I add frozen corn kernels which I nuke with my mix of beans/rice/veggies.

To reheat corn tortillas, get a skillet hot, no oil, run the tortillas under the tap water for a few seconds, then throw on the hot, dry grill. Wait until it's not sticking, then flip it - they turn out like fresh cooked. Or if you just get flour tortillas, wet paper towels and put them between the wet paper towels and microwave them for around 30 seconds.

You can cook beans in a slow cooker, too, by the way. Just put the beans and water in the crock pot, and they'll cook slowly without having to watch a pot.

Fresh cilantro will make everything yummier, and make the house smell amazing, too.

APPLE CIDER BEANS


4 16-oz cans of different soup beans, all different sizes and colors -- I use 1 can butter beans, 1 can light red pinto beans, 1 can dark red pinto beans and 1 can Great Northern beans, drained
2 c apple cider (unsweetened apple juice will do in a pinch)
2 LARGE parsnips, peeled and chopped
2 LARGE carrots, peeled and chopped
3 LARGE ribs of celery, chopped
2 LARGE apples, skin left on, chopped
2 Tbsps instant onion
1/2 tsp chili powder (or more to taste)
1/2 tsp black pepper


Toss everything into the slow cooker and stir. Then tie a 2" piece of cinnamon stick and 3 whole cloves into a sachet made of kitchen twine and cheesecloth. Imbed the sachet into the bean mixture before you cover the slow cooker. Cook on high 4 hours or on low 8 hours and it's ready to go. Discard the sachet before serving. Great over rice or as a side dish with meat.

My 'go-to' for vegetarian recipes has always been allrecipes.com. I like the site because you can search for meals by name or by main ingredients (for instance, if you want to find a recipe using eggplant, put that in the search engine and you'll come up with countless eggplant recipes), and for 'slow cooker' if you wish. Recipes receive ratings based upon people who have tried them, and feedback from reviewers also help to give you a great idea as to whether a certain recipe would be right for you. Reviewers also make suggestions for improving upon some of the posted recipes, often making an 'okay' meal much better. And as soon as you go to their site, suggestions for highly-rated recipes automatically show up. When you sign on as a member, you can bookmark your favourite recipes to refer to them time and again.

Here are the names of a few recipes that I like from the site (name of the submitter in parentheses)...apologies, as many of these aren't specifically slow cooker meals (*, slow cooker), but all are vegetarian:

Spinach Enchiladas (SADONIA2)

*Vegetarian Pumpkin Spinach Chili (Dani)

Pumpkin, Kale, and Black Bean Stew (Always Cooking Up Something)

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze (STEVEANDANGELA)

Pesto-Stuffed Grilled Portobellos (Larry Short)

Superb Sauteed Mushrooms (IrishMountainGirl)

*Vegetarian Slow Cooker Meal (limetango)

Delicious Black Bean Burritos (jessie)

Eggplant with Garlic Sauce (whats that Burning smell?) [This recipe I absolutely love, as I love eggplant/garlic sauce dishes from restaurants, but most here add hot spices, which I cannot eat.]
