Recipe- Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry

 

A warming slow cooker vegetable curry, using up all the veggies from the bottom of the fridge.

In my house we certainly suffer from ‘forgotten vegetable syndrome’. I buy specific vegetables with a recipe in mind, then our plans change & I make something else &the aubergines, peppers or carrots, or whatever else I have bought, get forgotten about until I find them a few days or a week later. I am sure I can’t be the only one, surely?!

I often use up these forgotten vegetables in soups or casseroles but a vegetable curry is also a great way to use them up. The addition of spices & coconut milk hides a multitude of sins and brings the flavour of the vegetables out. All kinds of vegetables go well in a curry & I like to include sweet potato as it helps the sauce to thicken. Plus this is a nice healthy option if you are trying to eat well.

I Love, Love, Love my Slow Cooker! I would be absolutely lost without it. I love how you can chuck together a healthy & substational meal in one pot, with zilch effort put in & it still tastes amazing! 

This is like every other of my recipe posts, super quick & easy to make, with about 10 minutes preparation time & 6hrs cooking time.
