Slow cooker vegetarian lasagne recipe

We love lasagne in our home. It is a fantastic way to batch cook, and save money. I typically make up a huge load of mince, vegetarian or meat, and add to it multiple vegetables and anything that needs using up from the bottom of the fridge. My favourite vegetables to add to a lasagne are onions, celery, peppers, mushrooms and grated carrots. When making up a large batch of vegetarian or meat mince we are able to then turn this into spaghetti bolognese, a slow cooker chilli or this slow cooker vegetarian lasagne. It is very easily adaptable, depending on dietary requirements, and you can even make a gluten-free slow cooker lasagne with ease.

Slow cooker chicken and prawn paella recipe

Getting up in the morning and planning dinner is a part of our normal family routine now. It is SO convenient to place a dish in the slow cooker and let it do its thing. Sometimes we don’t have time in the morning so I’ve been testing a range of quicker slow cooker dinners, that only take 2-3 hours. This slow cooker chicken and prawn paella is one such dish. It is ready in around 2.5 hours and tastes almost as good as a paella that has been slaved over for hours!

Slow cooker hunters chicken

We love a nice home cooked dinner, particularly one made in the slow cooker. The flavours have more time to develop and the meat is always soft, tender and delicious. A slow cooker is a really convenient way to have family meals ready and waiting to be served. Most dishes cook in 3-4 hours on high and 6-8 hours on low. There are lots of delicious meals that can withstand longer cooker times, such as slow cooker beef chilli, and this means you can set it before you begin work for the day. I personally don’t leave my slow cooker unattended usually but I work from home so it’s all good! Here is my recipe for slow cooker hunters chicken. I’ve tested it a few times, in a few ways, and this is my favourite way of cooking it.
