Weekend Recipe: Slow Cooker recipes… something for everyone!

I saw the Cranberry Pork Crock Pot dish quite a while ago and although I don’t eat pork or beef, I thought some people would really love this dish because it looks so wonderful. Then I didn’t want to exclude those that don’t indulge in the eating of pork, so I found a few additional recipes to add.

This week I’m sure everyone is tired of Turkey and Turkey leftovers and it’s getting chilly out. This is a perfect time to dust off that Crockpot, throw in some ingredients then either go out shopping or watch a football game.

I have Cranberry Pork, Corn Chowder and Chicken Creole…can I hear a YUM!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) can cranberry sauce
  • 1/3 cup French salad dressing
  • 1 onion, sliced

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the cranberry sauce, salad dressing, and onion. Place pork in a slow cooker, and cover with the sauce mixture.

Slow Cooker Vegan Corn Chowder

 

Ingredients

  • 2 (12 ounce) cans whole kernel corn
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 potatoes, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 red chile peppers, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 3/4 cups soy milk
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 lime, juiced

Directions

  1. Place the corn, vegetable broth, potatoes, onion, garlic, red chile peppers, chili powder, salt, parsley, and black pepper in a slow cooker; cover. Cook on Low for 7 hours.
  2. Pour the vegetable mixture into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel and carefully start the blender using a few quick pulses before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the mixture in the cooking pot. Once everything has been pureed, return it to the slow cooker. Stir the soy milk and margarine to the mixture; cook on Low for 1 hour more. Add the lime juice to serve.
