Slow Roasted Vegetables

Yesterday when we picked up our co op basket, I saw that there were 6 yams and two onions.  I thought that they may work well in the crock pot.  So I gave it a try and they turned out to be a delicious little side dish!

Not to mention it was super simple.  I love the idea of throwing everything in a pot and walking away.  So convenient. This dish is sort of an extension of my Seasonal Roasted Vegetables.

  1. Hi Melissa, I am looking to buy a slow cooker, especially to make steel cut oatmeal. What brand do you have? PS: I am Turkish:) Love your webpage!
    1. Sorry. That has been corrected. It's actually 1/4 cup olive oil and then 1/4 cup balsamic + 1 Tablespoon. I guess I was a horrible proof reader back in the early days of my blog.
          1. I usually sub veggie broth for some of the oil in a recipe (an old weight watcher trick) and it usually works...
  2. Excellent and very easy recipe! This would make a great dish for Thanksgiving. It did take longer to cook in my crock pot. After 4 hours on low, it was maybe 50% done. I turned it up on high for another 2.5 hours. I also added some extra garlic cloves.
  3. This recipe sound delish - I imagine any root vegetable could be added - white potato, turnip, carrots, winter squash etc......
