Crock Pot Lasagna

This was my first time making lasagna in a crock pot. It was incredibly delicious! The Follow Your Heart cheese was perfect! The noodles were perfect. Everything was perfect.

I used Beyond Beef (imitation ground beef). Diced onions and bell peppers. Diced mushrooms and tomatoes. Cut spinach (I used a frozen bag). Noodles (I used oven ready/No boil). Pasta Sauce. And Vegan cheese.

I layered the crock pot with all the ingredients, layer after layer. I had to snap the noodles to get them the correct length to fit inside the crock pot. Then I let it cook for a few hours.

A Girls Gatta Eat

I love food. If you follow me on instagram you probably already know that! I love to cook and eat good food. And all of it is vegan 🙂

I want to share some of the meals I’ve made because often times people don’t really know what vegans actually eat. It’s not difficult. It’s healthier. And the meals really are so good! Plus I take pride in a meal I made at home.

  1. Shepherd’s Pie — crock pot style

I love to use a crock pot because it’s easy, the house smells amazing, and there are leftovers for lunch the next day! For this meal I used imitation beef crumbles (there are several brands to chose from that come in a bag in the freezer isle). I also added, corn, carrots, peas, and tofurky gravy. I made mashed potatoes (peel and boil potatoes, mash them with some soymilk) and put them on top and then let it cook for about 6 hours. Super delicious!

2. Breakfast Burrito

I used chorizo style imitation meat, tortillas, Vegan Eggs, hashbrowns, peppers and onions and also maple syrup.

I cook the chorizo with diced onions and bell peppers. Cook the vegan eggs. Cook the hash browns. Then make a burrito! I like to drizzle Maple Syrup over mine. It’s really good!

3. Crock Pot Chili

I love chili. I eat it a lot. It is so easy to make and can be done several ways. I like to add v8 vegetable juice (spicy hot), potatoes, black beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, celery, onion, tomatoes, corn, bell peppers and chili powder.

4. Mostaccioli (Pasta)

I used pasta sauce, noodles, veggies, and vegan Follow Your Heart Parmesan Cheese. I absolutely love the Follow Your Heart line of foods. They make awesome salad dressings, imitation sour cream, mayo, cheeses, etc. All taste great by the way! So try that brand. I prefer Follow Your Heart over Daiya. You have to try yourself and see what you like though.

5. “Meat” and Veggies — So many easy variaions

Tofurky and Gardein have some great imitation meats available in the freezer sections. I like the roasts, fillets, strips, crumbles, etc. Add any veggies you like and you have a meal. Buy tofurky gravy or make your own vegan gravy.

Vegan gravy: Heat a milk alternative in a large skillet (soymilk/almond milk), add vegetable broth, gradually add flour, dice up a shallot, you can add garlic, I love to add diced mushrooms — add more/less flour to make it thicker or thinner.

Animal products clog up your arteries, your digestive tract, and they can be bad for your skin. Go plant based. Try meat free options. Enjoy what you eat and take pride in making it.
