Slow Cooker Vegetables
Healthy veggies are not the most popular menu item, but we need them. It’s tricky to come up with veggies that the whole family will eat. If you can come up with a veggie your family likes and it’s cooked in the slow cooker, then you’ve accomplished quite a feat.
I was craving vegetables one day since I’ve been visiting my daughter and her family and picked up squash and eggplant. The challenge was to get the whole family to like it.
When I was a young girl, my mother often cooked squash. I loved it. Yellow summer squash. She didn’t ever cook zucchini. I don’t remember her cooking any other type of squash. But not once can I recall her cooking eggplant. Later, I started ordering an eggplant casserole at Luby’s Cafeteria. That was many years ago, and I don’t usually see eggplant cooked like Luby’s. Sometimes, I cook it on a griddle. I prefer mine peeled, though you don’t have to peel it. My favorite way of cooking it on my griddle is sliced thin, lengthwise, seasoned well, and cooked with a little coconut oil.
