Here are some of the best vegan slow-cooker recipes that will make your life ten times easier! All of these recipes are super healthy, delicious and, best of all – so simple!
Let me tell you a thing or two about the benefits of a slow cooker! This little gadget has lots of amazing advantages. While it certainly doesn’t suit any kind of dish, it will make your meals taste ten times better. Thanks to the extended cooking times, the distribution of flavors throughout the recipe will work better. The meat (if you eat any) is tenderized in this slow process, so you’ll get amazing results even with cheaper meats.
The slow cooker is an amazing investment for any of you who hate washing the dishes, also! You can simply throw everything together most of the time and then have to deal with only one pot when it comes to cleaning. Pretty awesome, right?
It’s an excellent choice for a busy day when you really don’t have time to check the stove every 5 minutes to make sure the food doesn’t burn. You can actually leave it unattended all day and everything will be fine. Plus, it consumes less energy than a basic oven, so it’s a win-win situation.
