19 Delightful Meatless Slow Cooker Recipes

Everyone can eat meatless! These creative, flavorful meatless slow cooker recipes show you how — with or without beans!

With so many people cooking at home these days — and grocery stores running out of common staples — folks are looking for creative fresh ways to feed families. These 19 meatless slow cooker recipes are a great place to stop.

Filled with a variety of ingredients and flavors, these recipes are easy, wholesome and delightful. All you need is a slow cooker (and the ingredients) to try them all.

But why eat meatless?

For starters, meatless meals can be budget-friendly ways to extend the food in your fridge, freezer and pantry. From inexpensive beans to an array of veggies, there’s many ways to mix, match and combine ingredients for a variety of results.

Plus, meatless slow cooker recipes are easy to toss together and so, so tasty too.

Meatless eating has long been a cornerstone of dining in my house. I am a former vegetarian who gave up the lifestyle due to health reasons. But I never really abandoned the desire to eat less meat. Over the years, studies about how eating less red meat helps control asthma symptoms and how more plant-based eating can be a boon for the environment have only underscored this.

But I will admit: I am not perfect. I don’t have a flawless plan for eating meatless meals on x amount of days per week. In fact, some weeks — in the time before the endless month of March — we did have meat-filled meals every day.

I try. I do my best. I keep plugging along.

But really, and this is the important part, the current state of things has me grocery shopping far less. It also has me home, cooking from the pantry often. We have meat in the freezer, but I am trying to stretch it as far as it will go. So eating meatless a few times a week is a must.

Is it for you too?

I hope these recipes help you eat better, shop less and manage your grocery budget more. Bon appetit!
