Soups, casseroles, stews and chillis – it’s time to dust off the slow cooker and put it to good use.
It was just the other day that, after coming across a recipe for a slow cooked lasagna and sharing it on my Facebook page, I realised that I Haven’t touched my slow cooker in months. Eeeek!
And here I am craving a hot bowl of comfort food. Typical!
I purchased my first slow cooker last year and although you can really use the slow cooker at any time of the year, I always seem to remember about mine around October time, as soon as the cold weather kicks in and I get lazier in the kitchen.
If you haven’t yet got a slow cooker, I seriously recommend you invest in one as soon as you can.
They’re generally between £15 and £30 from Amazon depending on which size you require and they’re really worth every penny. There is nothing quite like opening the front door on a cold evening and being greeted by the inviting smells of comfort food that’s been simmering away all day!
I have a couple of tried-and-tested slow cooker recipes that I’ll be blogging about in the coming weeks but, in the meantime, here are some delicious vegan recipes I’d love to come home to:
