Warm Ups - Hot & Healthy Stock Pot Days
Plans for this weekend have gone out the door as I was hopeful to take a break in the New Forest to have a trundle through the trees before the leaves fell. However with 'Lockdown 2 - Electric Boogaloo' starting in the UK, it is was it is. So... I'm home and getting on with other things, including trying to add more vegan and vegetarian days into my diet. In response to a question from someone in my training group, on how to cook cheap easy meals, I thought I would post up a couple of recent Slow Cooker recipes too.
I have been joking about getting high on my supply this week, but I love homemade soup & bread.. It's super simple to make, but really warming and healthy. If you are finding it hard to get fired up about getting your vegetable quota up or to get the kids eating theirs too, its a very simple way to increase your fibre and vitamins with minimal fuss. If you do not have a slow cooker, a big pan works just as well, but keep an eye not to boil your mixture, as this will destroy the goodness and the flavours, if you belt all the good stuff out with the steam.
