Vegetarian crock pot recipes are catching up at tremendous speed with the busy and health-conscious crowd. Thanks to animal rights activists, people are trying to ditch their “carnivorous” habit and switch to a pure vegetarian diet.
We know that you haven’t the time to cook – and that maybe you don’t like to either! So, here are some of the easiest healthy slow cooker recipes for you.
Vegetable Mushroom Cheesy Soup
INGREDIENTS: 4 cups of frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot – thawed and blended; a can of mushroom soup cream; half cup onion, finely chopped; 2 ounces of paprika; and one and half cup cheese – low fat.
Take cooking spray with butter flavor and grease the crock pot with it.

You can add extra vegetables while cooking to make the dish more filling or serve it with rice for a hearty meal.
