    quorn spag bol is great
    dont know how big your cooker is mine is the large oval one

    this is free on green for red leave out the lentils

    2 bags quorn mince
    three tins of tomatoes (more expensive ones are better)
    the following must be dry fried
    three onions
    one large box mushrooms (I use about 500g or more)
    garlic cloves to taste
    when dry fried put in slow cooker

    dried lentils (one-two handfuls)
    a couple of oxos
    italian herb mix

    put lentils in the bottom of the slow cooker with crumbled oxos
    put in everything else then top up with water to just above ingredients
    turn on and leave to cook

    this is much better cooked the next day to enrich the flavours

    I use this sauce for spag bol
    lasagne

    I also add kidney beans and chilli for guess what a chilli :)

    my daughter says its nice with a tin of baked beans added to some and put in a casserole with mash on top for a sort of sheppards pie

    all those ideas are free on green

    it also freezes well

    any casseroles work well

    I cut veg into chunks and spray with fry light and roast first for a really good roasted veg casserole
    again other things can be added
    DH adds meat to his
    we have also used quorn sausages in it to make sausage casserole

    my daughter makes the most fab porridge in hers and its ready for their breakfast

    I had nothing in today so i've just thrown whatever's in the cupboard in the slow cooker today with a packet of Morrisons sausages - chopped up whatever swede and butternut squash I had left over, chopped an onion, one veg, one chick and one beef stock cube, seasonings, garlic and herbs and a tin of tomatoes and flicked it on.

    Smells good so far...

    Help me decide!!
    Try using boned skinnless chicken thighs with leeks, carrots, garlic, thyme, lemon zest and pearl barley - free on Extra Easy and really filling.

    Also I do a beef stew with chunked cassarole beef, onions, carrots, a veg + beef stock cube and lots of pepper.

    Fab gadget - dont use mine enough!!

    I make a leek and potato soup in mine. Gallons of it LOL

    No precise measurements, I just bung it all in.

    Chopped Leeks
    Chopped Potatoes
    (you could put any other veg in here too)
    couple of pints of stock made with veggie stock cubes

    switch it on and leave it to cook. It might look a bit brown once the leeks are cooked, but don't worry, they're still fine. Blitz it all up and enjoy. Cheap, easy and filling.. and free to eat too on green and EE any time you like.
