35 Vegan Crock-Pot Recipes To Keep You Warm & Well-Fed

Veggie Primer

I'm not going to lie, I just got my first electric pressure cooker, and I haven't used it yet. It's a T-fal pressure cooker with 12 settings — basically, it's a fancy crock-pot. But it's been chilly outside, and that means it's time for me to face my fear of simple electronic devices and make some easy vegan crock-pot recipes.

Whether you have a crock-pot, a slow cooker, or an electric pressure cooker, all of the recipes below should work easily for you. Because I think other people out there might not be as experienced with these devices like me, I've only selected recipes that give explicit instructions for using a crock-pot, slow cooker, or electric pressure cooker. And, most importantly, all of them are vegan — and should keep you in good stews, curries, and dessert all winter long.

Whether you're into Indian food, chili (I've learned about half of the vegan crock-pot recipes out there are for chili), or want to learn how to use your crock-pot to make weirder stuff like vegan condensed milk, apple pie cake, and candied nuts, I've got you covered. Here are 35 vegan crock-pot recipes to keep you warm and full. Just read the manual before you break that thing out.
