These simple crockpot recipes are tasty and safe for vegetarians to enjoy.There are many crockpot recipes that were not designed with vegetarians in mind. However, if you search you can find tasty, and inexpensive, vegetarian crockpot recipes. Here are a few to get started with.

Savory Slow Cooked Squash and Apple Dish
AllRecipes has a super easy to make vegetarian crockpot recipe. It includes butternut squash and apples – two foods that are in season in October. This recipe would make an excellent side dish at Thanksgiving dinner. You will need:

* 1 (3 pound ) butternut squash – peeled, seeded, and cubed
* 4 apples – peeled, cored, and chopped
* 3/4 a cup of dried cranberries
* 1/2 a white onion – diced (this is optional)
* 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
* 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Toss everything into the crockpot. Cook on high for 4 hours (or until the squash is tender and cooked all the way through). Stir as needed.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Stew
The cooler Fall weather makes a nice, hot, stew sound incredibly tempting. Real Simple has created a recipe that vegetarians can safely enjoy. You will need:

* 4 carrots – cut into 2 inch piece (about 5 cups)
* 3 medium turnips – peeled and cut into 1” cubes (about 3 cups)
* 1 large onion – diced (about 1 cup)
* 1 zucchini (cut into 1” pieces)
* 2 large garlic cloves – minced
* 1 (14 ounce) can of diced tomatoes
* 1 cup vegetable broth
* 1 teaspoon of salt
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
* 1 (16 ounce) can of chickpeas, drained.

Put everything except the zucchini and chickpeas into the crockpot. Cook on low heat for 6 hours (or high heat for 3 hours). Add the zucchini and chickpeas and cook for 1 more hour on low heat.

Onion Garlic Hash Browns
Taste of Home has a vegetarian breakfast recipe that starts in the skillet and finishes in the crockpot. You will need:

* 1 large red onion (chopped)
* 1 small sweet red pepper (chopped)
* 1 small green pepper (chopped)
* 1/4 cut butter (cubed)
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 4 garlic cloves (minced)
* 1 package (30 ounces) of frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon pepper
* 2 teaspoons of fresh parsley (minced)
* 3 drops of hot pepper sauce (optional)

Put the onion, peppers, butter, and olive oil into a large skillet and saute them. Add garlic and cook for one more minute. Stir in the hash browns, salt, pepper, (and hot sauce). Transfer it all to a 5 quart crockpot (coated with cooking spray). Cover it and cook it on low for 3 or four hours. Sprinkle parsley on top when done.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
