You could do the veg soup recipe in a slow cooker, I threw lots of veg seasoning and herbs in mine, then blended it all.

For the caseroles I just used to put some stewing steak (from the butchers) carrots, potatoes, parsnips, sweet potatoes, turnip, water and gravy salts in, put it on low before work and voila it was ready by the time I got home! But Im sure it could be adapted for SW..... its ever so tastey! xxx

on a red day i'll bung a whole chicken in the slow cooker before work and serve it up with salad etc at tea time, it is soooo tender, I've picked it up out of the pot before and the breasts just came off the bones:eek:

Also I do quorn chilli in it, just put all the cold ingredients in and leave it simmering, add the kidney beans about an hour before serving :D

Just to let people know (incase you dont already) but....... You cannot cook dried red kidney beans from their raw state in a slow cooker because it won’t reach a high enough temperature to destroy the natural toxins - my BFs mum told me that when we bought ours xxx

hi i dont know an awful lot about slow cookers but i would most definetly think you needed to put water in with your chicken if you cook it in there...............am just guessing but almost sure you need fluid in with it (its worrying is this chicken in slow cooker malarky)......dont want you to burn the house down lol
