Chickpea and Potato Curry

Jackfruit Vegan BBQ Sandwiches
Inspired by pulled pork, these jackfruit BBQ sandwiches will have you hooked. Delightful Mom Food says the slow-cooked jackfruit combined with the gluten-free sauce is the reason this recipe is so tasty.
Vegetable Bean Soup
As Emily from One Lovely Life says, “Sometimes the easiest recipes are the best!” With a base of all the hearty winter soup staples — beans, carrots, celery, and onion — you’re free to get creative by adding your choice of herbs.
Gluten-Free Homemade Bread
If there’s soup, it follows that there should also be bread. You will need to plan this recipe in advance, however, as Recipes.net recommends leaving the dough to rest overnight. It might be worth the effort if you’ve got gluten-free flour and caraway seeds on hand.
Crockpot Broccoli Cheese Soup
This broccoli cheese soup from Evolving Table can warm up any winter's day. Gluten-free, hearty, and packed with veggies, it’ll warm the soul for sure. Just make sure to swap in vegan broth, vegan butter, and vegan cheese to keep it plant-based.
This slow cooker lentil bolognese from Plantifully Based looks and sounds absolutely delicious. To keep it gluten-free, make sure you use chickpea pasta, as Francesca Bonadonna suggests. Oh, and make sure you have vegan parmesan on hand for serving.
Summer Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto
Along with the all-important risotto rice, leeks, butternut squash, and sage make up the core ingredients of @beckyexcell's gluten-free slow cooker dish. Make sure you swap out the butter, cream cheese, and parmesan with your favorite plant-based alternatives.
Vegan and Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Lasagne
Vegan Chickpea says its vegan lasagne is a fave with everyone, and from the photos, it’s easy to see why. Once you’ve chopped and sautéd the veggies (eggplant, onion, zucchini, and yellow squash), all that’s left to do is layer them in the slow cooker with the remaining ingredients. Yum!
