I have a black bean sweet potato chili recipe posted. I cooked it for a long time over the stove like it is listed. But one day I didn't have enough time to make a batch in the evening, so I just dumped everything into the crockpot before I left for work, let it cook for 8 hours. My crockpot will go to warm when finished. When I got home, it was very good. I only do crockpot in the winter. I will definitely cook it this way more often. It was a huge time saver!

I recently shared one of my go-to vegetarian crockpot recipes on SparkRecipes here: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=880551

It's a filling lentil curry that my family mysteriously loves, in spite of 'not liking' both lentils and curry. Weird. I'll often serve this over quinoa with a big dollop of greek yogourt for extra protein.

There are quite a few veggie crockpot recipes on Spark, although I find that a number are really high in sodium. I obviously haven't tried them all, but I can personally vouch for:
Spinach and Tofu Crockpot - recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai

Veggie Burrito Filling - recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=494937

Veggie Chili - recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai

asp?recipe=31525
(I add extra onion, garlic, and a splash of Worchestershire sauce to this one for added flavour.

This is basically what I made the other day, but I also added garlic, cumin, chili powder, and oregano. I was following a recipe that called for pork, but I left the pork out. It's actually really good, but as I'm still warming up to beans, the beans were not really the star of the show. I had them with tons of lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, and a some fat free sour cream on a whole wheat tortilla. It was really quite awesome :)

I don't have anything for you right now, but I'm on the look-out too. So I'll share if I find some good ones! I hope someone else can post some too...?

Please send me your crockpot recipes. I'm open to ones with meat or w/out... though the meat ones are easier to come by so if you have any great meatless recipes that would be fantastic!
