My friends have been raving about their crockpots and so I decided that I would see what all the fuss was about. What interested me the most was that I could throw all my ingredients into something that would do the cooking for me all day and have a meal all ready by the time I got home.
For my first experiment, I made Vegan Lentil Potato Chili.
This makes 8 servings and takes about 15 minutes to prep. It took me about 25 minutes to prep as I am slow at cutting veggies.
I set it on low for 8 hours.
In my crockpot, I combined all the ingredients and stirred to combine.
I covered and cooked on low for 8 hours (until the potatoes are tender).
I served with avocado.
Verdict? Not bad for a first try. Do you have a favourite recipe? Post below for others to enjoy.
