Crockpot Roasted Vegetables

Crockpots are wonderful.  I used to think they were only good for chills and roasts, but roasted veggies?  Beautiful revelation.

Ingredients

Quantity Unit Name Link Alternatives
2 bell peppers cut in large wedges
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
3 small zucchini, cut in thick slices
½ cup garlic cloves, whole
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon dried or fresh herbs of choice

Instructions

  1. Grease crockpot and add all of the vegetables. Season with salt, herbs, and olive oil, then stir to evenly coat.
  2. Cook high for 3 hours, stirring once every hour or so. The veggies will be a softer texture than oven-roasted veggies, but tend to be sweeter and more flavorful.
  3. Note: Don't discard the liquid that forms in the pot, use it as a vegetable broth for later cooking!

Prep Time: 3 hours
Serving Size: 4 side servings
