I love using my slow cooker but its hard to find vegetarian slow cooker dishes that aren't some variation of a soup, stew, or chili. And while I love a good soup as much as the next person, sometimes I crave something different like this Slow Cooker Char Sui Tofu and Vegetables. If you aren't familiar with Char Sui, it's basically Chinese barbecue with the perfect balance of savory and sweet. For this vegetarian Char Sui Tofu and Vegetables, you start by crisping up the tofu and then cooking it in the sauce in the slow cooker. During the last thirty minutes, you add lots of vegetables to round out the dish. Adding them at the end guarantees they stay tender crisp and don't become too mushy.
