What cannot be cooked in a slow cooker?

Delicate or tender ingredients such as soft or leafy vegetables and herbs are not ideal for a slow cooker. Try adding these ingredients near the end of cooking or stir them in prior to serving. Non-vegan ingredients like certain meats and dairy will not cook well in a slow cooker, but this is not a concern when cooking vegan.

Can you just throw everything into a slow cooker?

For many recipes, yes, you can just throw everything into a slow cooker! This works especially well for soups and stews. Some recipes will require a bit of staggering for best results, such as pre-cooking certain ingredients like onions, or adding fresh herbs at the last minute, but this is not always necessary.

What vegetables should not be added to a slow cooker?

You can add any vegetable to a slow cooker, but it’s all about timing. Delicate or soft vegetables like peas, zucchini, asparagus, and leafy greens will get very mushy in a slow cooker. You can use them if you’d like, but be sure to add them near the end of the cooking time so they retain their shape and texture.

Can I put frozen veggies in slow cooker?

Yes, you can absolutely put frozen veggies in a slow cooker, and it’s a great way to save time and money when cooking. However, the same rules apply as with fresh vegetables. Avoid using very delicate or soft frozen vegetables when using a slow cooker.
