There is something wonderful about coming home to a gently simmering slow cooker. Before we left for work this morning I added:
2 chicken breasts (I buy frozen chicken as it’s cheaper)
2 leeks cut into slices
1 tin of plum tomatoes
4 large sliced carrots
2 large potatoes, halved
1 stock cube and a mug of water.
Sprinkle of gf gravy granules when I got in from work. I set the slow cooker on low and let it cook gently for twelve hours.
We ate ours with kale and green beans which is another reason for loving autumn food. I’m a great fan of our slow cooker and use it for a huge amount of winter dishes of soups, casseroles, stews and slow roasts.
The other great thing about a pile of green beans and kale taking up half our plates is that it fills us up very cheaply and healthily and goes really well with any kind of stew. It also fits in well with the slimming world plan of plenty of speed food. The whole plate is mainly veggies with just a bit of chicken. We over did it a bit over the summer and lots of veggies are the answer.
There’ll be plenty more like this as the cooler weather has returned.
