Blogtober day 16 - Yum!

I'm working from home today - something slightly different for me but still very interesting.

Anyhoo, I decided to be a little organised and make lunch early so after breakfast I made Roasted Autumn Vegetable soup in the slow cooker - want to know more?

Yes you read it right - roasted vegetables in a slow cooker - and it was soooo tasty. I had planned on having enough to either save for another lunch or to go into the freezer.... Himself scoffed all (bar my bowlful)!!

Any hoo - here are the nuts and bolts

Turn your slow cooker on to hot, add a gloop of oil
  • 1 medium onion coarsely chopped
  • 1 largeish potato also coarsely chopped
  • Half a large sweet potato (yes you guessed) coarsely chopped
  • Two large carrots peeled and ... chopped

Chuck all the chopped vegetables into the now warming slow cooker and season well.
  • Salt and pepper
  • Small pinch chilli flakes

Stir to coat everything with the oil and seasoning, place lid and leave. I left for about half an hour, stirring a couple of times ... then...
  • boil the kettle and cover the cooking vegetables with hot water
  • I added a vegetable stock cube at this point - I grated it directly into the hot water and stirred well.
Replace the lid and allow to cook until all the vegetables are tender.

I then blitzed it and added a little more hot water as it was rather thick, stirred well and served with hunks of bread.

Oh my word it worked and was really tasty - go me! The house filled with such a warming scent during cooking that Himself kept coming in to investigate. I will certainly make it again - super simple and super yum xx
Have a lovely weekend

  1. We spent the day at a craft fair with our craft stall. It was an early start … to get a lamb tagine in the slow cooker for when we got back, make a nice healthy lunch to take with us and packing the car. We weren’t really in the mood for it but ended up having a really good day. We were so glad of the slow cooker dinner as we were both shattered by the time we got back πŸ˜ƒ
