Vegetarian baked beans cooked in a slow cooker make a great side dish for a barbecue, picnic, or for any lunch or dinner. Beans are a great source of protein for vegetarians and this vegetarian crock pot recipe is a cinch to prepare. Just soak the beans, add everything to a crock pot or slow cooker, and walk away. While your baked beans are cooking, you can make a batch of vegan cornbread or a side green salad to go with your dinner, since you'll have some much extra time on your hands!

Be sure to plan ahead if you are making this dish, as it requires soaking beans overnight before putting the ingredients into your slow cooker.
