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,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
Cooking Time – 5-8 hours
- fresh vegetables
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Dash of seasonings (one or more of following: salt, pepper, ranch dressing packet)

- For this large amount, cook vegetables on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 6-10 hours. Choose the longer cooking time if you are including potatoes.
