Slow Cooker Recipe

Food & Drink, Student Life

Now that the academic year is coming to a close, you’ll find you have so much more free time that was previously taken up by your assignments. Why not use that time to try your hand at some slow cooker recipes?

Baked Beans and wedges…

This is a great first recipe to try your hand at slow cooking. You can leave this on low for up to 9-10 hours; either overnight or whilst your are out at uni. That way when you come home you’ve got your tea ready to serve.

Ingredients:

  • Onions (thinly sliced)
  • Bacon (2 rashers cut into pieces)
  • Chopped Tomato (400g)
  • Stock from a Cube (200ml)
  • Cannellini Bean (410g)
  • White flower (1 tbsp)
  • Dried Mixed Herbs (1 tsp)
  • Wedges

Method:

Slow cooking is simple and easy. There really is only a few steps since you bung everything in the cooker at the end.

  1. First, fry the onions and bacon in a non-stick pan. Fry them for around 5 – 10 minutes.
  2. Once fried, throw them (along with your tomatoes, stock and some seasoning) into your slow cooker.
  3. Stir in the beans and then cover with the lid and leave for 9-10 hours.
  4. Once ready, serve with wedges.

Hi! I’m Alex Greenhalgh and I am a second year at Edge Hill University studying Primary Education with QTS, and yes, I know I’m mad for going into that profession… (I’ve heard all the jokes) but I am keen to make a difference to the lives of the next generation. When I am not in University I enjoy cooking, gaming and the university students’ staple pass time, ‘spoons. My interests will be reflected with my blogs as they will have a strong focus on cooking. I understand the struggles and the endless trawls through Aldi looking for the best bargains, so I want to pass on a few insights into how cooking can be fun, inexpensive and tasty! I really do hope you enjoy reading my blogs!
