Hi! I’m not a vegetarian (first time posting here). I have a vegetarian staying with me and I want to make veggie friendly meals. While I’m an omnivore, I really don’t care if I eat meat or not. I have a few recipe ideas already, but I’d like a crock pot recipe for one day (and for leftovers) since we have plans to be out all day on Sunday.

My crockpot recipe books aren’t very helpful for meatless “main dishes.” I’m open to anything but prefer high fiber meals for my own dietary needs. My vegetarian relative eats dairy and eggs and doesn’t really care for tofu. Thanks!

The recipe below is not actually a crockpot recipe, but can easily be made this way and in fact I have done it many times, just throwing all the ingredients in there and adding some water/vegetable broth to cover everything. I also added red lentils to the recipe for a boost of protein. Seriously this is an amazing soup! It is thick and hearty and very flavorful. I never would have imagined tomatoes tasting good with saurkraut and potatoes and cabbage but this really works!

Another one, though more of a breakfast dish, is along the lines of the one below, which is a millet based crockpot recipe. I LOVE millet and apples/cinnamon for breakfast, with the crockpot going the night before. Though the recipe below calls for rice milk, this will work with any plant milk or dairy milk. I've also just used mostly water with one of the cups being cashew or almond milk. there are so many variations. Last week I did millet with orange juice and shredded coconut in the crockpot along with ginger powder and pinch of turbinado sugar.

oh that tamale pie looks awesome. Lentils are great too, but they have lot of fiber. Well so do beans, so maybe you will have to keep your portions small.

You make "a lot of fiber" sound like a bad thing..?

If you don't drink enough fluids, it sure can be. Balance, moderation

If you want an easy night - perhaps the first night, get about 4 cans of Amy's Vegan Chill. It's delicious and I have served it to omnivores and they have ALL liked it.

Doctor it up a bit with 3 cans of your choice of beans (canned and rinsed) frozen organic white corn, Rottel Mexican style tomatoes, 3 cans if you are adding the beans and corn, a jar of salsa. Add cumin,cilantro if you like, other Mexican spices.

Make some rice - brown, wild, white or a mixture of the three. Serve with vegan cornbread or any loaf of vegan bread.

This recipe (if you could call it that) can be served inside of hard tacos or flour tortillas. Just offer shredded Daiya cheese, (vegan) vegan sour cream,shredded lettuce and diced onions and tomatoes.

You can eat dairy sour cream and cheese if you like.

Another easy dinner would be pre-made veggie burgers, on vegan rolls, fresh sweet potatoes with maple syrup and roasted root vegetables.

You can also make a vegan veggie soup together.

Keep lots of fruit in the house. Clementines, apples, bananas, and pears are good.

Keep Ezekiel English muffins in the house with vegan spread. Earth Balance is good to keep in the house, as are steel cut oats.

I love Tofurky rand Deli Slices for sandwiches. Keep mustard and veganaise (vegan mayo) on hand.

Desert can be fruit salad or store bought ice cream."So" is good.

Best of luck!
