Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes

crockpot recipe - recipe - sandwich - trader joe's - vegetarian

I usually bake my sweet potatoes in large batches, but in the summertime, I choose to ignore the oven.

Crockpot, who knew you were my year-round buddy?  Scrub the potatoes clean, pierce them with a fork, wrap in foil, and slow cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Eat with maple butter

…or mash it up!  I used Trader Joe’s Boxed Carrot Ginger Soup to thin some out…

…then spread on toasted bread with Vegenaise

I wouldn’t really call this a crockpot “recipe” (<—click for past blog posts) but I’m definitely using this method to make sweet potatoes from now on.

I’d Like to Buy the World a Coke

We have a few cans of Regular Coca-Cola in the fridge from a BuzzFeed shoot. I still have residual eating disorder issues re: drinking calories (I can’t even suck down a smoothie without doing deep breathing exercises) but I’m totally fine eating them. That’s why I whipped up this beauty…

…which (WARNING!!!) rises a lot and caused quite a mess in one of the loaves. But boy oh boy, it makes some stellar Banana Bread.

With more soda, I whipped up this BBQ Sauce...

…and served it on Tofu with Rice.

Coke or Pepsi?

Or…Matzo Lasagna!

We have some leftover from Passover, so I’m still concocting crazy mashups

…this ain’t pretty…

…but it sure is tasty!

Better/easier than no-boil noodles! Or rice paper (<—yes I’ve made lasagna out of that too).

Matzagna (aka Matzo Lasagna)

Ingredients

  • About 5 sheets of Matzo
  • 1/2 Jar Spaghetti Sauce
  • Splash Milk (I used Soy)
  • 16 ounce container cottage cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • Shredded Cheese (I used Vegan Cheddar Daiya)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Puree the spaghetti sauce, milk, cottage cheese, and eggs in a blender to form a SUPER SAUCE!

Pour a little bit of the Super Sauce into the bottom of a greased 8×8 pan. Top with matzo, cheese. Repeat until you finish with the last of the sauce and a final sprinkle of cheese.

Let this mixture sit for at least 30 minutes. You could probably go longer, up to overnight?

Bake, covered with foil, for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and continue for another 15, or until bubbling and brown.

Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
