Holiday side-dishes in the slow cooker and other in-advance options

Hi everyone! I'm entertaining a lovely crowd on Christmas Day, but most of the day is going to be busy with Christmas at my parents' house in the AM. I'd love to put a dish in the slow cooker, and do as much beforehand if possible.

I'm looking for vegetarian side dishes with no dairy (food allergy). But if you have a good idea, as long as isn't something super-cheesy, I can modify it to taste cheesy. I just won't use cheese alternatives (due to OTHER allergies) but can recreate flavor, just not always texture.

Also, if you have a good idea and it often contains some form of meat, if you think it doesn't rely on it, I can modify it.

I just need ideas of anything that can easily be made in advance and reheated (for minimal time, since the oven will be taken up with everything), or things I can put in the slow cooker.

I don't need ideas for gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, turkey, and potatoes (white), since I have those. And I'm good for appetizers and desserts. Just any other side dishes to round it out.

Thanks!!!
