One of my slow cooker dishes is this Coconut Basil Chicken and I have been wanting to make a vegetarian version for a long time. I never really think to put tofu in the slow cooker, but after seeing this recipe on The Healthy Maven, I couldn't' wait to try it out. Packed with tons of fresh basil, this recipe is a delicious and healthy way to make a delicious Asian inspired meal at home. I like to add bok choy and mushrooms, but almost any veggies would work. Just don't add them until the end if they cook quickly.
