I know it's hard to imagine for some, but with summer being right around the corner, I *love* to cook in my crockpot when it's really too hot to start up the oven or to stand over the stove.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/chef.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":chef:"><br><br><br><br>
I've looked online and found a few really yummy sounding crockpot recipes, but am wondering if anyone has some really delicious tried and true crockpot recipes that you or your family really loves? I would love some good "stick to your ribs" type of dishes, while I really appreciate the occasional soup with a nice salad, I would like something a bit heartier as well.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
Any and all recipes are appreciated!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
Thanks so much!<br><br>

This is what's in my crockpot right now! A box of frozen spinach, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of vegetable broth, a can of pinto beans, some chopped onions, a clove of chopped garlic, some whole wheat pasta, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes...cooked on low for four hours. Hope you like it!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:">

Last weekend I cooked the most excellent pot of great northern beens with roasted garlic, matchstick carrots, red onions, and potatoes. I seasoned them up with fennel, red pepper, salt, pepper, and a few sweet basil leafs. They cooked for about 9 hours. Yum!

I'm totally with you on crockpot cooking in summer -- I like the fact that I can put everything together at 11 o'clock at night when it's cool (I refrigerate it and start the crockpot before I leave for work in the morning).<br><br><br><br>
I've been using Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker a lot lately. It has some really good recipes!

Yep, I'm right there with ya'!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"><br><br><br><br>
It's easier and just like you said when it's sooo hot outside during the summer, who wants to turn on the stove or oven?<br><br>
My family likes cold salads & sandwiches, and there's even the option of grilling, but I mean sometimes I just want something quick & easy, something that I don't have to stand over while it's cooking.<br><br><br><br>
I've checked that cookbook out from my library before, but don't remember any recipes that really just stood out to me, but maybe I need to go check it out again and take another look!<br><br><br><br>
Thanks for your suggestion!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sunny.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sunny:"><br><br><br><br>

Just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone that has posted in this thread!<br><br>
I appreciate you all taking the time to post your ideas!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I guess I should have been a bit clearer on the kinds of recipes I was looking for.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
I do have quit a few bean recipes and I have a couple of soup-type recipes, but I really would like something that maybe isn't so "soup" like, hope that makes sense?<br><br>
I even have a cuban black bean recipe that I copied here from VB that is THE best black bean recipe that I've tried in my crockpot.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/chef.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":chef:"><br><br>
If you like black beans you HAVE to try them, this is the only way my 12 yr. old daughter will eat "homemade" beans!<br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=52546&highlight=cuban+black+beans" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...an+black+beans</a><br><br><br><br>
I've wondered it it would be possible to do some type of tofu style dish in the crockpot, does anyone here have any experiences?<br><br>
I'm curious to know if it just kind of falls apart.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks again everyone who has posted and hopefully we'll get a few more responses for us crockpotters out there!<br><br><br><br><br><br>

In terms of tofu in the crockpot, this recipe turned out really well for me: <a href="http://flickr.com/photos/corbet/374791294/" target="_blank">http://flickr.com/photos/corbet/374791294/</a>.

<p>I know this is years old but just wanted to add a thank you for this info if you are still on here. My daughter wanted to add tofu to our German goulash and I wasn't sure if it would stand up to it. Glad to know all I have to do is freeze it first. I would never have thought of that.</p>
