I do love my slow cooker but admittedly, I don’t use it as often as I mean to. One of my favourite dishes that I always make in the slow cooker is a stew. I’ve been fancying something a bit different to a beef and vegetable stew, so I bought a gammon joint, and then just randomly chucked loads of ingredients in to make this smoky gammon stew; it turned out lovely! Perfect for a cold winter day. It’s also completely syn free on Slimming World!
I love my slow cooker, and especially at this time of year it comes out a lot. One of my favourite one pot meals to cook in there is a chilli. It’s usually a beef chilli but I decided to do a veggie one this time using the beans I received in my September Degustabox. I added a variety of tinned beans to make a 5 bean chilli – it’s totally syn free on Slimming World too, and makes a great EESP meal 🙂
This one is fairly hot but you could use mild chilli powder instead, or halve the amount of hot chilli powder. I love spicy food so I don’t mind the heat factor! You don’t have to use the same beans I’ve used either; whatever is available will be fine.
