I have a delicious slow cooked treat for you all! People are really surprised when I say you can cook bakes in the slow cooker – I suppose most people use them for stews and casseroles. However, you can honestly cook most things in the slow cooker! This recipe always goes down a treat with everyone – especially with my little Molly! It’s great for getting your children to eat their daily veg requirements as the slow cooker creates such a wonderful flavour from the most simple of ingredients. Enjoy!
