  • We like a cauliflower dish.
    Start with frying a large onion and some garlic, add chopped tomato’s, add tomato paste, salt & pepper and add cannellini beans (washed and drained). In the meantime cook cauliflower a la dente.
    Put tomato/bean sauce in the bottom of an oven dish. Optional; add cut up chorizo sausage or a vegetarian sausage if you like, Scatter the drained and cooled down cauliflower florets, top with grated cheese and pop in the oven.

  • I am in love with my slow cooker through winter. Pork belly, beef cheeks, lamb shanks. Brown everything, pop in your slow cooker with seasoning, herbs and a little sauce. Place lid and let it go. I love experimenting with different combinations.

    8 sausages, chop into 5-6 piece per sausage.
    Half fill a pot with water, bring the water to a boil then add your sausages.
    Add half a packet of french onion soup.
    Add 2 tablespoons of gravy mix.
    Let it cook for 2 hours.
    Then add your variety of veg & let it cook for another hour.
    Makes 4 servings & is very yummy!

  • Try these recipes in a slow cooker.

  • I dont follow recipes for caseroles I usually just gather ingredients that I have already and go from there. Adjust taste and yumm

  • I love soups in the slow cooker….our favourites are Pea and Ham Soup and Creamy Pumpkin and Potato Soup!

    Pea and Ham Soup
    (Put everything in slow cooker on low for 8 hours)
    2 ham hocks
    1 large onion diced
    2 carrots diced
    2 celery sticks diced

  • these sort of things and stew can be done oven slow cooker and you can use what ever meat you want even sausages I do a lamb chop and sausage stew in a beef stock or chicken I do not put sausages in but make a chicken stock I put garlic in every thing I cook like this but I always brown my meat in my big pot than I add my stock Garlic and such ex onion than put the lid on once it comes to a boil I turn it down and walk away the smell will get you back in to check than once the meat is close to ready you add all your veges you want in it….mine all have potato as it is a must for us than once ready I thicken it with gravy and really a casserole is just like a stew but layered and done in the oven in a casserole dish with lid or put foil over to keep the heat in and you don’t really have to do the gravy as it is just a constructed stew or a stew is a deconstructed casserole….. I do have the sachets but I have to admit when even in the slow cooker I forget and still do it the same way as in the pot but one day I will think and try the flavors I have as I am sure I got one of just about every thing. I just do the stews as I can do a big pot full than put the rest in to containers and freeze meals as I always cook for an army.

  • I have been buying the mccormicks slow cooker packets they are lovely and even the kids have given it the thumbs up.
