“Roast” Vegetables


June 15, 2016

Super easy 'roast' vegetables for your slow cooker, and much healthier than baked in oil!

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 3 hrs
  • Yields: I served 5 as side vegetable


Cut vegetables of your choice

- potato

- sweet potato

- pumpkin

- carrot

- onion

1 tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp rosemary

Cracked black pepper to taste


1Cut vegetables into large chunks (eg I cut medium potatoes into 1/4's)

2Place vegetables and all other ingredients into a bowl or bag

3Toss to coat with oil/herbs

4Pour vegetables into slow cooker bowl and lay separately around base, not overlapping

5Replace lid and cook on high for 3hrs approx or until tender

Tried these last night, Very impressed. wasn’t able to lay them in one layer so I just stirred them every now and then, added a chilli and a can of black beans, complete meal πŸ™‚

Then can be layered but just flip/move them during cooking to circulate layers is what I’d do .. and keep them small cut

Do the vegetables need to be in a single layer

Vegetables were cooked to perfection! Took about 2.5hrs on high setting.

Yes, they will just cook in the juices of the meat though. Some like to crisp them up briefly in a hot oven at the end when this is the case. I just enjoy them as is from around the roast πŸ™‚

Would this work if I had them on the bottom of slow cooker with a roast on top of veggies?

Moderately longer but not by a significant amount πŸ™‚

Hi Paulene, wanting to try this out soon. If using frozen vegetables would they need to be in longer? Thanks
