Vegan Slow Cooker Pumpkin Curry

A warm and hearty vegan slow cooker pumpkin curry that’s sure to satisfy on a cold fall or winter night. I don’t hate the day when I decide it’s time to bring to the slow cooker out of the storage closet and into the kitchen. It’s usually some day in October when the temperatures start to drop and the heaters start to kick on in our apartment. The leaves have already started to fall and outside is a sea of red, yellow and orange.

But the million dollar question is what is the worthy recipe that will kick off slow cooker season in our household. This year it was curry.I’m a big fan of curry. I’ve been eating it since the first Thai restaurant opened up in my hometown when I was in high school. And I ate loads of it when I traveled to Thailand a few years back. And…

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Guinness Irish Stew

Ready for St. Patrick’s Day? You will be with this hearty Slow Cooker Vegetarian Guinness Irish Stew, perfect for St. Paddy’s or any cold winter night.So it’s the middle of March and the East coast just got hit with a massive snow storm. Which means that you shouldn’t dismiss soups and stews just yet. There’s still a need for warm, hearty comfort foods and if anyone knows warm and hearty, it’s the Irish. I visited Ireland a couple summers ago and you can read about my travels to Dublin, Aran Islands and Galway, Killarney and Dingle. I’ve never felt m ore at peace and at home in any of my travels than I did in Ireland, which makes sense considering my Irish roots.

I have such fond memories of St. Patrick’s Day growing up. Going to watch the parade and then heading over to my Grandma’s house for corned beef and cabbage, Irish…

Slow Cooker Vegan Italian Wedding Soup + $700 Amazon Giveaway!

Slow Cooker Vegan Italian Wedding Soup is a delicious and satisfying plant-based alternative to this classic comfort food. Plus, it’s super easy to make in the slow cooker.Steve and I have gotten into a nice pattern these past few weeks – it’s called slow cooker Sundays. Every Sunday morning/afternoon, we throw ingredients in the slow cooker, move on with our day and then have dinner ready for us in the evening as well as plenty of leftovers for the week ahead. As much as I enjoy cooking, I certainly don’t enjoy cooking everyday. That’s why I love batch cooking – making large quantities of meals to have leftovers for lunch or dinner for the week or to freeze for another time when we’re in a dinner pinch.

I’m really looking forward to spring-like temperatures around the corner but I’m going to shed a tear when it comes time to bid adieu…

Butternut Squash and Kale Slow Cooker Lasagna

Butternut Squash and Kale Slow Cooker Lasagna is a game changer – saves you so much time and hassle! You’ll never want to boil noodles for lasagna again. This version is packed with my favorite seasonal vegetables – butternut squash and kale. Is winter over yet? My body and brain are confused. One minute Boston’s getting hit with a snow storm that puts the city on hold (and my husband stuck in Kansas City) and the next it’s 50 degrees outside and I’m enjoying a leisurely walk outside without my parka. It’s a strange winter with lots of up and down temps. As much as I’d like to hope that this string of warmer weather is a sign that spring is around the corner, I’m playing it safe and taking proper precautions that another snow storm is imminent. Precautions = cooking up all the warming comfort meals, like this slow cooker lasagna.

There’s nothing…

Slow Cooker Greek Baked Beans

Delicious, comforting, easy and budget-friendly, what more could you want out of dinner?! These slow cooker Greek baked beans fit the bill for all of the above. This recipe has been a long time coming.

Ever since we got back from our honeymoon in Greece, I wrote down all the recipes I wanted to re-create at home. However, in an attempt not to bombard you with an overload of Greek food and trips down memory lane, I decided to space things out a little bit. I wrote down Greek baked beans on the editorial calendar and kept pushing it back and back until it finally felt like a good time to post. In January, I’m all about warm comfort foods, soups, stews and my slow cooker. So making these Greek baked beans in the slow cooker this month seemed like the perfect idea.

Oh, and perfect it was. I’ve made these…

Slow Cooker Vegan Chili Cheese Lentil Dip

The American Pulses Association paid for my travel to a Pulses Immersion Event in Napa, CA but I was not compensated for this post in any way. Just speaking from my lentil-loving heart! All opinions are my own.

The perfect plant-based snack for Super Bowl Sunday – this Slow Cooker Vegan Chili Cheese Lentil Dip is full of spicy chili flavor and a delicious and satisfying meaty texture. I feel like I don’t need to bore you with my whole Super Bowl spiel again. You heard that last week with my Vegan Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos recipe.

I will share with you a different story though, one called #RealLifeImAFoodBlogger. It goes something like this…test a vegan cashew cheese dip for the blog on a time crunch…looks and tastes like soup…debates for 60 seconds whether or not to try again…worries about the sun going down for shooting…stares at sink overflowing with dirty dishes…decides to go for it…in a hurry,…
