    Now you've all got me thinking about getting a slow cooker, but being a vegetarian I'm wondering if it's worth getting or is it more of a meat cooking/casserole-y kinda thing?

    Does anyone do any vegetarian cooking in their slow cooker or am I dreaming?

    I got a slow cooker for mothers day yesterday and I am so looking forward to using it! Although DH says I can't have it until mothers day, but thats ok cause I am spending the week finding recipes.

    Wardygirl the instruction booklet for my slow cooker has some vegetarian recipes, there's dhal, chick pea curry, vegetable primavera, chilli bean and veg - and you can also do rice dishes, desserts, bread... and slow cookers are really good for cooking lentils, chick peas etc for meals - so yes, you will definitely be able to do vegetarian meals in one!
