Slow Cooker Curried Cod

Corrr this is good and the addition of the chickpeas means that it is a hearty meal in itself (but is also begging for some crusty bread to go with it! – would be rude not to really!)

Slow Cooker Aubergine & Lentil Pasta

It is so hot in the UK right now, so there is no way you’ll find me cooking over a stove in this heat! So the slow cooker is being put to good use this week. This recipe is vegan and really hits the spot even with meat-eating family members!

Slow Cooker Lamb Koftas

These little balls of sunshine are so versatile and go equally well in a warm pitta with tzatziki and salad or popped onto a skewer (do this after they have finished cooking) with a greek salad.

(I adapted Joe Wick’s recipe for the slow cooker! Got to love a bit of Joe!)

30 Second Chicken (previously known as THE Lemon Chicken)

So many of you LOVE this recipe! I took it off the blog three days ago to edit it and you have been messaging/emailing me asking me where it went! I have given it a little tweak as there was some confusion over the gravy 😂 After the chicken has cooked it will have left behind a lovely juice (but this will be bitter on its own).  Sift out the lemons and add gravy granules and water to taste. Sometimes I even add a spoonful of honey if I am feeling frivolous!

I use a medium sized chicken and cook for 8 hours.

Slow Cooker Bolognese

Before we get down to the nitty gritty I just want to have a quick word about slow cookers. You never need as much liquid as when you do conventional stovetop cooking. This is because the liquid doesn’t evaporate away and if you are cooking with meat, it will release fat as it cooks.

So with this in mind when you cook the slow cooker bolognese please don’t panic at the start. It will look veyr thick. Don’t think there must be a typo in the recipe and throw in a load of water, it will be too watery and tasteless at the end.

Instead trust the recipe and as it cooks much more liquid will appear and you will have a rich bolognese sauce.
