Discover the convenience and versatility of your slow cooker with over 60 inspired, tried-and-tested and nourishing recipes.
For anyone who loves good food but has little time to spend cooking, an electric slow cooker can fit perfectly into a busy lifestyle. They can be used day or night, and you don’t have to stay at home to keep an eye on your cooking while you produce hearty, healthy food for all the family to enjoy. The recipes in this book mainly use sustaining grains, beans, and legumes, along with vegetable ingredients and lean high protein foods, including fish, poultry, and meat. The addition of fresh herbs and spices with known health-giving qualities, such as turmeric and ginger, adds flavor as well as packing an extra nutritional punch.
