Crockpot Help?

I want to love the crockpot. I NEED to love the crockpot, now that we have afternoon church this year (blah) and Dan typically has meetings after and I'm exhausted after wrangling kids for the past 2 hours (nursery).

This is where I need your help.

You see, I used to have the (erroneous) impression that the crockpot was only made for meat/weird & unidentifiable ingredients (e.g., cream of anything soup), but I now recognize that neither of those has to be the case. But I haven't really found even ONE recipe that I can count on to be amazing. We tried this soup last night, and meh...I wasn't blown away. Dan really liked it, but I feel like the whole point of a slow cooker meal is that the flavors meld beautifully and the flavor deepens and this was a little bland, I thought. (Granted, I only used half the amount of butter, but still.)

So...anyone have any phenomenal, veggie-friendly crockpot recipes?

So...anyone

I added a vegetarian version to the bottom of that recipe, just for you :)

I think lentil soup turns out best in the crockpot. I will look up the recipe later and email you.

I'd suggest taking a look at these two blogs. There's a whole list of vegetarian crock-pot recipes on both of them. http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2005/12/vegetarian.html
