Chili – with its endless variations and, more often than not, the inclusion of protein-rich beans – lends itself perfectly to vegetarian diets. And the Crock Pot is the perfect place to brew up a warm, hearty vat of chili. And so I thought, hey! I should do a round-up of slow cooker vegetarian chili recipes!
Interestingly, vegetarian chili recipes made in the Crock Pot were a little hard to find. This surprised me. Maybe it’s just my obsession with both things that made me think that, surely, a gazillion other vegetarians out there are obsessing over – and creating – similar chili recipes. Not necessarily so. Or maybe I’m just a sucky detective.
But! After some poking around, I found a pretty great selection of Crock Pot vegetarian chili recipes – and, of course, I had to share a few of my own favorites. I think they’ll keep my Crock Pot on the counter all winter long.
(I’ve added a few meaty recipes at the end to show the carnivores some love).
