You might have noticed that I haven't posted any recipes these last couple of weeks. Well we have had our kitchen redone so we had no oven and no hob which has made cooking a challenge and we had to rely on the microwave, slowcooker and BBQ. With the help of pinterest I found some great recipes that I will share and review with you today!
Microwave Squash Risotto
|BBC Good Food|
We really enjoyed this. It was easy and I was surprised at how the rice cooked just as if we had done it on the hob. The only thing I would change would be to reduce the amount of sage as the flavour was quite overpowering!
Slow Cooker Jambalaya
|from American Family|
This was probably my favourite recipe we made! Delicious flavour of jambalaya, packed with veg, chorizo and prawns. The rice cooked really well and I would definitely make this one again!
Slow Cooker Sesame Ginger Chicken
|from Keeping Up With The Joneses|
This was refreshingly flavoursome slowcooker dish and i was impressed that the chicken was not dry but instead moist and yummy! The ginger and spring onions created a delicious dish!
Microwave Sweet Potato
|from BBC Good Food|
I liked this meal - it is minimal effort and the result is very tasty. Simple and quick after work dinner - the only bit that takes any time is cooking the potatoes!
Slow Cooker Enchiladas
|from Taste of Home|
This was another one of my favourites! I love the taste of cooked wraps and although you don't get the crisp crunchy bits you get if they are cooked in the oven, these still tasted great! One tip - follow the instructions and don't put a tortilla layer on the bottom - mine stuck majorly! Other than that it was yummy!
Slow Cooker Pasta
|from Becoming Betty|
Again, another slow cooker meal that I really enjoyed! I was a little skeptical about whether the pasta would cook but it did and the pockets of mozzarella were sooo good!
So there you have it...we managed to survive 2 weeks without a functioning kitchen and although I NEVER want to do that again - we made it through without ordering takeout or eating out once and have gained some great recipes!
I am so happy now that our kitchen is finished - I think I was having baking withdrawal!
What is your favourite slow cooker meal?
