I don't own a crockpot, but do have somewhere one could go, and am seriously considering it, but would love recipes that don't involved processed foods to start, and that are meat-minimal or meat-free for this particular application.

Well, I have years of survival cooking experience.

Survival cooking is what you do when you get home at 5:00 PM and need to feed the family somehow before hockey/soccer/dance/music/?Huh at 7:00.

Survival cooking 101

Take any protein food (pre cooked chicken, ground beef, tofu ground beef,  canned black beans, whatever?)

Toss in a fry pan and add frozen mixed vegetables (your choice)

Add a can of soup (flavour depending on type of meal), and can of water and either instance rice or pasta.

Season to taste, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Favourite blends for my family:

Ground beef, kernal corn, tomato soup, elbow macaroni, with onion power, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprica and chilli powder. Sprinkle with cheese when serving.

Cut up chicken (saved from last nights roast), mixed veggies (carrots, peas, corn), mushroon soup, minute rice, pepper, onion and garlic powder, whatever herbs are in the pantry (parsley, oregano, basil)

Black beans, canned diced tomatoes, minute rice, chili powder, cumin, onion and garlic powder. A little beef broth enhances the flavour of this.

Cut up chicken, frozen green peas, chicken broth, minute rice, soy sauce, honey, vinegar (to taste) for a sweet and sour dish.

This is basically hamburger helper, using your own ingredients. If you have a little more time, or are particularly picky about food quality, you can use fresh ingredients. One of our favourite empty nest dishes is just ground beef, to which I add chopped onions, garlic and celery. Brown all till onions wilt, then add sliced carrots, potatoes, and green beans, Add a little soy sauce (I use this in place of salt), seasonings or herbs, some beef broth and a pinch of sugar. Simmer for about 20 minutes, then finish with a little sour cream.
