Hi all,

So with my new £7 slow cooker, i am after some vegetarian sloe cooker recipes.
I know there is a slow cooker thread, but just want veggie (quorn) recipes that people like.
Have never used a slow cooker before, so not sure what works well and how long things take.

MommyB you are a star! That looks like a delicious free green dinner to me. No tweeking required if using frylight.

I never considered a slow cooker for veggie meals, but have just spent the past hour comparing them online and I now think I NEED one LOL

Honey - will let you know how I get on. Please share your tried and tested ideas too x

I am now the proud owner of a butternut squash and a slow cooker!:woohoo:

If it is 3 o'clock now, will I have to put it on high or low setting if I want to eat MommyB's stew at about 7?

Ta-da! The Moroccan stew is lovely!!! Not only tastes great but the house smells spicy too LOL

I added lemon juice and fresh mint to the couscous and had a spare HEB so added some chopped dried apricots too.

I did quorn in the slow cooker today and it was very nice. Nothing fancy, but very succulent and it held its shape.

Started some onions and garlic off in frylight in a frying pan. Added to SC along with

a bag of frozen quorn Swedish style balls
a carton of passata
mushrooms
frozen sweetcorn
tablespoon of mixed herbs
half teaspoon of hot chilli powder
black pepper

After only 2 hours on high it was probably ready, but we were not ready to eat so left it on low for another hour. I don't really have the hang of this yet!

Served it on spaghetti with cheese on top.

I ordered a cookbook from Amazon today and will report back if I find anything exciting.

PS - the Moroccan stew was even better on day 2. It tasted like it had honey in it even though it didn't.

Silly Sausage - usually most recipes are 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low...... if you have medium, you guessed it -6 hours :)

Thanks Gobolino.

I don't think there is much cooking in quorn so it didn't take long. Was nice to have dinner cooking in the pot though without fear of it sticking and burning a pan. Hopefully soon I will be confident enough to leave it on all day and go out. I still have visions of burning the house down!! LOL

I dont know about burning the house down but one night I put a rice pud on for a bit too long - it was caramel in colour but didnt actually have burnt bits...... not too nice now. In future I'd do the rice pud for a few hours in the evening while I'm around :)

I've done a nice veggie soup this week with just veggies (I used sweede, carrot, turnip, onion, sweet potato, butternut squash, potato) cooked on the hob in a little synned utterly butterly and then popped in the slow cooker with some veg stock - lovely yummy stuff!

Wooohoo! My book has been delivered! :D

Will be back in 8 hours to report on my white bean and fennel soup attempt.

It is supposed to have oil, milk and stilton in it. No chance. It also requires a fennel bulb, funnily enough. I grew some fennel in my garden this year, but it did not form bulbs. I will be making the soup with the feathery leaves instead. They smell nice and liquoricey so hopefully they will do the job.

Laters :)
