7-a-day Slow Cooker Challenge Round Up

It seems that packing 7 fruits or vegetables into a slow cooker recipe was quite a challenge as, other than my own, I only had two excellent entries which I will share with you.

 
First up was Pravina from Indo-Global Food with a simple vegetable curry: Aloo-Palak (Potato and Spinach) Curry which can be eaten with rice, naan, roti or paratha.

 My own dish was Chicken with 7-a-day Mediterranean Vegetables a great one pot meal best served with something that will soak up the delicious juices.

Natalie at The Tofu Diaries brought a Vegan dimension to the Slow Cooker Challenge.  Regular readers may have noticed I have a real love of paprika, so this Sweet Potato and Three Bean Paprikash is going on my recipe wish list.

Many thanks to Natalie and Pravina for taking part in the Slow Cooker Challenge.  I hope you will join me on 1st of May to find out what we will be making in our Slow Cookers as we move towards the warmer weather.

 Woo hoo!  I must have left the linky open longer than I though and the lovely Sarah of Tales from the Kitchen Shed has snuck in at the last minute with a delicious Vegetable Biryani and what a gorgeous vibrant photograph.

this always looks like such a lovely challenge... can I enter next month without a slow cooker?

Thanks for sharing - both the curry and the flavours of the Mediterranian dish sound incredible! Looking forward to hearing what's up next :)

Only three, but three very tasty entries nevertheless! So sorry I didn't get around to entering this month, my slow cooker hasn't actually been brought out for a few weeks now.

I have a slow cooker and always meant to master pulses in it... I especially like the dish at the top.

Ah again I see your slow cooker posts and reminds me I haven't gone and got myself a slow cokker, I like the idea of vegan dish and yes I too love paprika a lot !

Have been meaning to get the slow cooker out again for batch cooking in preparation for the arrival of baby number three. Some lovely recipes highlighted here.

Congratulations, I didn't know you were expecting. Would be great to have you on board with the Slow Cooker Challenge.

Yes, it does look good, doesn't it?

Some lovely recipes available now for slow cookers, I haven't done much with pulses yet either.

No worries Lou, you are welcome any time but no pressure.

Sorry Dom, you are just going to have to buy or blag one!

Aw thanks Natalie, lots of postive comments about all the dishes.

I'm converted now, although have used it less since I got my cooker back!
