Tricia’s Slow Cooker Vegetables Feed the Larger Family

Posted By Tricia H On May 17, 2012 @ 5:25 pm In Crock Pot,Garden,Recipes,Side Dish,Slow Cooker | 7 Comments

As we head into the summer months, my beloved slow cooker switches into high gear. See, I try and avoid using the oven if at all possible, so the slow cooker gets a lot of use. We all know you can save money and feed many by serving garden vegetables. One way I save is by having veggie night once a week. And sometimes the slow cooker helps me out.

All I do is rinse and slice vegetables, toss them in the slow cooker with just a tablespoon or two of olive oil and a touch of seasoning.

Now, I make a bunch of vegetables to feed my family. You notice the slow cooker is filled with veggies. We usually have some left over we can eat as a side with a meal later in the week. You might even want to freeze slow cooked veggies in meal-size portions.

Slow Cooker Vegetables

Yield – 8-12 servings

Preparation Time – 15 minutes
