Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

I just love making slow cooker recipes.  This new slow cooker recipe I have for you today is Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers.  I already have one stuffed pepper recipe on my blog, but I wanted to do this one in the slow cooker.  I used quinoa for the stuffing, but you could also use rice if you prefer.  Hard to make these stuffed peppers look good in a photo, but I promise you they are delicious!

I made the quinoa separately before adding it to the slow cooker.  This recipe is very easy and makes a lot, so you will have easy dinners all week long.  I used my dairy free cheese sauce in this recipe.  I also think my pizza cheese sauce would be good in this recipe.   I hope you enjoy this stuffed pepper recipe as much as we did!

If you need a nut free version, I think sunflower butter will go very well.  I wanted to take the peanut butter chocolate flavors to the next level, so I swirled some peanut butter on top of these as well.  Not only are these slow cooker quinoa brownies easy to make, but they also come with a boost of healthy protein.  This recipe freezes well also.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

For the longest time, my husband has been wanting to make a cream of broccoli soup.  I wasn’t sure he could successfully make a vegan cream of broccoli soup.  He totally outdid himself with this vegan cream of broccoli soup! Despite the name, this healthy soup has no cream!  This soup is really easy to make too.  If you are a fan of soups, you may also like this post full of healthy soup recipes.

I used almond milk in my recipe, but you could also use full fat coconut milk for an extra rich texture.  Another option would be to top this with a cashew cream.  Yum!  This cream of broccoli soup is vegan and gluten free.  I added some nutritional yeast for a slight cheesy flavor.  I cooked this on the stove top, but you can also cook this soup in the crock pot as well.
