Slow Cooker Surprise

Wouldn’t it be great if when you got home after a long day of work, your dinner was already cooked and waiting for you?? This is why I LOVE my slow cooker! You can literally throw anything in, leave it to cook on low for 6-8 hours and it turns into a delicious, wholesome, warming meal and you have dinner waiting for you when you return home from work!

I had some veg that needed using up so I decided to put it into my slow cooker and wait to see what happened. For this meal I used;


2 Sweet Potatoes

1 Turnip

1/2 Butternut Squash

3 Carrots

1 Cup Red Lentils

1/2 Cauliflower

1 Cup of Kale

1 Kali Vegetable Stock Cube

2 Tablespoons Vegetarian Gravy Granules

Pinch of Salt

Pinch of Pepper


  1. Chop all vegetables and add to slow cooker,
  2. Add all other ingredients and cover with water.
  3. Turn slow cooker to low and leave for 6-8 hours.
  4. Peel and chop 2 sweet potatoes, add to pan and boil for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Once potatoes have boiled, drain the water and mash.
  6. Serve with slow cooker concoction.
