Cauliflower Chilli Con Carne is a delicious veggie chilli con carne which uses cauliflower and lentils in place of meat or a meat substitute such as Quorn mince. It was made in a slow cooker which helps cook the vegetables and lentils to perfection.
With the over indulgence of Easter now behind us (although it was a lot of tasty fun while it lasted!), I thought I would go with a healthy cake free recipe for a change this week.
This easy to make Slow Cooker Vegetable Lasagne is a lighter and low calorie version, as it only contains some fat free cottage cheese on the top layer. It also contains baked beans and LOTS of healthy vegetables
In all the years that I have owned a slow cooker, I have never made a lasagne in one. I guess I have not understood the point in having to pre cook the meat part before adding to the slow cooker and layering with the pasta and white sauce, you can pop it in an oven and cook it quicker.
With autumn in full swing now, and the nights drawing in dark thanks to the clocks going back this weekend, it is definitely slow cooker/crockpot time and there is nothing better than leaving something cooking away while you go about your daily routine, and then have it ready to eat when it is meal time. One way of saving time, is to cook a Slow Cooker Butternut Squash in your crock pot and then use it in meal for your family.
So Jenson is a massive fan of baked beans, and will ask for them with most meals. From the usual meals like sausage and mash, fish fingers/fish cakes, scrambled egg and with toast, baked beans are expected. However, I also add them to my cottage pie base, and therefore Jenson will ask me to do the same with his bolognese sauce, which is fine, but he also asks for them to be served with his roast dinner! He is a baked bean lover!
