Slow cooker soup, stew and chili recipes need to be a part of every vegetarian's repertoire! So bust out that slow cooker and get ready to eat your way through these delicious vegetarian crock pot meals.
Who doesn't love vegetarian crock pot meals? Soups and stews are perfect for making in a slow cooker. Unlike a lot of other foods, they benefit from a long and slow cooking time -- by the time they're done, the vegetables are tender, the flavors are melded, and you have a practically effortless dinner waiting for you. If you don't eat meat, it can be a little bit tricky to find vegetarian crock pot soup and stew recipes because so many of them are based around tenderizing tough cuts of meat, so we've done the work for you!

I make lots of stews in the slow cooker but never think to make soups in it. Great collection of recipes. Thanks for sharing!
You read my mind! It must be fall coming up because this is EXACTLY what I've felt like making an eating lately. Bookmarking and pinning this. So much goodness!!! I'd eat 'em all.
Winter ratatouille with polenta? And a chili polenta pie?? I'm so sold. Soon. 🙂 I identify soups and stews with fall and winter, so I'm resisting because I cling desperately to summer. Corn and berries and watermelon! But I know in like 3 weeks I'll be shivering when that first chill sets in, and then I'll have these at the ready! Hope you and the kitties are well.

Fall is just around the corner! Get ready! 🙂 We've been doing well, but busy - we're moving back to Illinois next month, so we're in a whirlwind of packing and all that fun stuff. I hope you're doing well too!

Frustrated that some of the photos for the crock pot dishes didn't have names or links to the recipes. And wouldn't you know it, the ones I was most interested in knowing more about had nothing.... Sigh.
Too bad I can't see the other recipes since the site shows an ad and then removes all but one recipe, sending me to the comments section. I'm using IE, so there's no excuse for this poor user experience.
I'm having the same problem
only two recipes show up. Clearly something is interfering with the page as was previously stated with the other user comments. Could you send me a link via email?

Unfortunately unable to access the RECIPE LINK,just follows through to the next recipe when clicking on it 🙁
...yeah....the problem still isn't fixed. So sad. So frustrating.
Terrible website!! Too many ads makes it difficult to find anything!
I'm having the same problem. The ads are a nightmare! And none of the recipes show up. Also on the address bar it says this page is not secure. You should fix this, really.

Hi Flavia, we're working with our ad partners to resolve the ad issues, sorry you're experiencing them. There is a link to the recipes beneath the description, but sometimes there is an ad that you have to scroll past to see it. We've changed our format for newer roundups to avoid this issue!
