Vegan Pot Roast Veggies

Vegan Pot Roast Veggies
A lot of people assume that going Vegetarian or Vegan is a big sacrifice that involves a lot of misery. For some people, I suppose that might be true. But, I was a person who was never crazy about meat to begin with - I didn't dislike it, but it was never my favorite food, either. So, I found it quite easy to just stop eating it.

But, that doesn't mean that I never miss some of the things that go with meat. Like those great roasted, seasoned Veggies that go with Pot Roast. Now, those were tasty. But, not Vegetarian.

Well, the last time I made Pot Roast for family & friends, I decided to make a second Slow Cooker of just seasoned Veggies for the Vegetarians in the crowd. And - they were GREAT!

Here's what I did:

Vegan Pot Roast Veggies

Use smaller Crock Pot (I believe it is a 4 quart model)
Layer Veggies into Slow Cooker till full within 1" of top
First Baby Carrots
Then, haphazardly
Quartered Red Potatoes (or, if tiny, use them whole)
Onion Wedges
Celery Sticks
Sprinkle with seasonings:
1/2 Envelope Onion Soup Mix (Use a Vegan Variety - last time I checked, the store brand & Lipton were Vegan)
1 T Garlic
1 T Olive Oil
Cover & Cook on high for about 5 to 6 hours

Tips for dining with Omnivores: Use this same recipe to make Omnivore Pot Roast - simply add an appropriate Cut of Beef at the bottom of a large slow cooker, top with the veggies, use a whole Envelope of Soup mix, but only 1 teaspoon Garlic. Cook 5-6 hours on high.
