I went out and bought a slow cooker, in the hope that my body might favour me doing actual cooking. After a few days of laughing at me, i set too and made a very simple curry. It made me three nice-sized portions, which i ate with some ready cooked long grain rice, a small naan bread on the side and a sprinkle of sliced almonds. On the first even the sweet potato was very sweet, but other than that is was good. The following two nights (no, i don’t mind eating the same food three nights in a row) but then then sweet potato became a bit mushy, but it tasted the same, so i ate it anyway.
Sweet Potato & Chick Pea Curry
1 Jar of Korma sauce
1 sweet potato, sliced and chopped (i bought 2, but i only needed 1 in the recipe)
1 small tin of cooked chick peas, drained and washed
Peal and chop onion.
Peel and chop sweet potato.
Rinse chick peas.
Add to cold slow cooker pot.
Add curry sauce and chick peas.
Stir everything together.
Place inner crock pot into slow cooker and set of ‘Auto’
Takes about 4 hours to cook and i stirred it once half way through.
The rice was a instant packet, heat in the microwave rice, and naan bread was shop bought, but i ate some proper food, didn’t eat my way through half a bag of chocolate in the evening, nor did i wake up during the night hungry. I shall try something else soon and share whether it is a success of not. Remember food is body fuel, the better food we eat the better fuel our body’s are receiving.
