This can be done on the hob as well, but I prefer to bung everything in the slow cooker as it’s so handy!
You can either make the sauce from scratch or use a jar sauce of your choice (handy tip: Tesco’s own is yummy!) if you want to make your own here’s what you’ll need…
2 tbp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic granules/garlic powder
1/2 ginger powder/ground ginger
1 tin coconut milk
1 tin of chopped tomatos
Coriander (if you like it) either fresh or dried, to taste, I usually use a teaspoon or two.
Pop all this in your slow cooker!
Now the other ingredients:
1 tin green lentils (drained)
1 tin chickpeas (drained)
220g tenderstem broccoli (chopped roughly)
190g babycorn (chopped roughly)
1 brown onion (diced)
You can also bulk it out by adding diced sweet potato if you like, I tend to boil the diced pieces to soften them before adding to the slow cooker!
– add the ingredients to your sauce that is already in your slow cooker, and cook for around 6 hours on high (but it depends on your slow cooker)
– depending on your taste you can add whatever you want to this for your “side”
– also using your slow cooker is great if you want to bulk cook meals, I’m a student and I usually get about 4 portions out of my slow cooker which I can use the next day or freeze!
