Slow Cooker Recipes Because No One Feels Like Cooking Every Single Night
Rachel, I'm so sorry this took me so long! I don't use a lot of slow cooker recipes in the summer (they just seem made for lazy, cold nights) but in the fall/winter I usually make a crockpot meal about once a week. These are some we've tried and enjoyed. 🍽
- •Chicken & Pasta Soup - http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/slow-cooker-chicken-and-pasta-soup-recipe.htmlI LOVE this recipe. It has all the comfort of chicken soup but the lemon & fresh dill make it so zesty and I love that it calls for pastina (I hate with noodles in soup soak up all the delicious broth.) With any recipe that takes 6-8 hours I'd recommend prepping the veggies the night before to make it a little easier in the morning!
- •Tuscan Chicken & Artichokes - http://www.recipe.com/tuscan-chicken-and-artichokes/Easy and a little different than the typical crockpot chicken.
- •Beef Roast & Carrots - http://newleafwellness.biz/2014/07/23/slow-cooker-beef-roast-carrots/My favorite! It's sooo good. I prefer mashed potatoes to potatoes cooked with the roast so this is ideal for me.
- •Not my favorite curry recipe because it uses curry powder instead of curry paste but still tasty and v easy
- •Sausage Spinach Tomato Soup - http://newleafwellness.biz/2013/03/21/slow-cooker-sausage-spinach-tomato-soup-recipe/Hearty and easy. My experience with slow cooker soups has been that they're pretty much fool-proof so pick ones with ingredients you like and you're almost guaranteed a delicious dinner.
- •BBQ chickenLiterally just chicken breasts and a bottle of BBQ sauce. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Serve the chicken as is or shred for sandwiches or salad. You can make your own sauce or add other flavorings if you're feeling fancy.
- •Slow Cooker Lasagna - https://www.weightwatchers.com/food/rcp/RecipePage.aspx?recipeId=135321(I'm a little nervous that this isn't the right recipe) We recently did a Weight Watchers slow cooker lasagna that was a surprising hit at our house. I mean, my poor Italian grandmother probably spun in her grave but sometimes you just can't pass up the ease of a slow cooker.
- •[In case you haven't noticed, I love New Leaf Wellness recipes! They're healthier than most slow cooker recipes and don't contain a lot of processed foods. I haven't tried them all but have liked all that I have tried. Definitely check them out!]
- •That's all I can think of for now but I'll try to add to it later!
