Warming recipes to get you through winter

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

A must for any winter warming recipe list, a beef stew is a great way to pack in nutritional vegetables, protein, and carbohydrates into one delicious meal. The slow cooker creates a tender texture to the beef and vegetables, making them literally melt in your mouth as you eat. You can either cook this dish on the low heat setting for 8 hours or the high setting for 4, allowing you to continue with your day as it simmers to perfection.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry

For those that are adventurous with flavours, this vegetable curry dish will have your mouth watering. This recipe can also be altered and tailored to your own personal tastes by using the curry seasoning of your choice. If you love a bit of spice, you could choose to add a vindaloo paste to the vegetable curry to give it an extra kick. Anyone who prefers a fragrant taste without the extra spice would love the addition of a mild tikka curry paste, bringing a complimentary combination of spices to the vegetables of your choice.

Cleaning Your Slow Cooker

Using a slow cooker is easy, but cleaning one is even easier. As the food will be contained in the inner ceramic pot, you only need to take this out and hand wash with a soft cloth and soapy water; the lid will also need to be hand washed. If there are any spills on the outer pot then these can be wiped off using a soft cloth.
