3 Great Slow Cooker Recipes

Once you have completed your ultimate kitchen remodel there is a world of cooking to explore and take pleasure in. But, there’s not always time in the day to make a delicious meal from scratch and any short cut can be a god-send.

You can put a number of ingredients into this pot, cook them for several hours without much supervision and enjoy a meal that tastes as good as if you have slaved over the stove for several hours instead. Here are a few top recipes to try out in your slow cooker.

Vegetable Korma

For the vegetarians out there, this is the recipe with the most ingredients and the most time investment in prep, but all good curries do. Firstly, cook the onion with the dried spices on a low heat until the onions are golden and then add the chill, garlic and ginger for a further minute. Add the rest of the vegetables and cook five minutes.

At this point add it to the slow cooker with the stock and peas. Cook this mixture for about two hours on a low heat. Before serving, stir in the yoghurt to get that creamy texture that makes the curry, then simply spoon over a rice or accompaniment of your choice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion, chopped thinly
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 2tsp ground cumin and coriander
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped and deseeded if necessary
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • Piece of ginger
  • 800g mixed vegetables chopped chunkily of your choice (such as carrots, potato, courgette)
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 200ml yoghurt
