Hello everyone - I thought I would share one of my favourite Italian one pots, made in the slow cooker.
Not many ingredients good to eat healthy and cheap and best of all can freeze this a portion another day.
Organic Chicken Thighs skinless or with bone in it - remove skin - two per person
One jar or carton of Passata
Small Bag of baby Potatoes diced
Two Red Peppers per person or use mixed, diced up chunky
Herbs used Parsley a half a bunch or dried herbs - Rosemary and Thyme half a teaspoon each.
Paprika One tablespoon.
Seasonings Black Pepper no Salt in stock cube if you get an organic one still has salt in it.
Notes some additional alternatives or changes you can do with this. Use Jars of ready roasted Red Peppers dice up instead of Peppers. Use Tinned Potatoes if none available, Understand nothing wrong using tinned products. One other no Passata use good jar of Pasta Sauce some varieties brands Italians use are worth the money often better much more healthy. Look on line.
I buy all my Pasta Sauces Pasta Ingredients bulk buys online cheaper many organic. I also use diced up Onions and often a time saver. Please by all means use dried herbs I do all the time if I can get fresh use them or not. One bit of advice use Food processor or Blender to make sauce easy portion and a sauce for another day if you so wish to stores great in the fridge.
Season Chicken with Black Pepper a half teaspoon of Paprika and touch of salt. Easier to use a freezer bag add Chicken and seasonings close shake and coat. Very much easier to do all meat this way.
Add to warmed up slow cooker on the low setting.
Can switch this on first does help a bit get it started.
Add Potatoes and Peppers.
Blender or Food processor add Passata herbs and Paprika use half a teaspoon.
Stock cube add touch of water. Blitz up. Use a bowl to pour in sauce then you can ladle this out to cover meat and vegetables.
Cover and on low for four hours depends on you size of your slow cooker.
Check and if need to add some more additional time.
Hope you all enjoy. You can adapt this to Pork or Turkey. Add Tins of Cherry Tomatoes. Add Pulses Cannellini Beans or Chickpeas.
My husband and I are in our late 60's. He drinks a bottle of wine every night. I am worried about the consequences of this. He becomes extremely angry if say anything about it, however I approach the subject. I have tried everything even AA. We have no family . I am at my wits end and it is making me unwell .. I would like to talk to about it ...
Hi I've been gluten-free for the last 2 years and lactose-free for 3 months.
It's difficult to find somewhere to eat safely. Which limits me and irritates me.
I'm up north and away from any big places.
Just wanted a whinge about it really.
Does anyone else suffer?
I’ve recently read 2 books - 1 called Life Changing Foods and Medical Medium - both by Anthony Williams - way ahead of his time and for some, won’t be within their boundaries of belief. However because of my own life experiences they make absolute sense to me. I followed his regime concerning celery juice and at the end 3 months noticed that the nails on my feet had reverted back to being smooth, a lovely pink colour and nicely ‘thin’ again, rather than being thick, ridged and cream coloured.
Hi all, I am watching many webinars on fighting disease using food and other healthy options.
I am surprised how long I for one never mind most of us have had blinkers on. We put so much unhealthy, poisoned and processed food in our body. Add to that environmental toxins etc. My eyes are being opened. Disease is rife. We have to look after theses precious bodies or they will break down on us. One thing we can control is what we put in our body.
Anyone else on here passionate about healthy organic unprocessed food choices?
During researching a diet for my old age (to reduce the likelihood of heart problems as I head towards oblivion) I came across the idea of drinking a litre of water first thing upon waking from nights sleep. Apart from that I am trying to replace coffee and tea with water and often drink a glass during my meals. And never drink high sugar drinks. Anyone have a view as to the benefits?
In the last few months, a number of my 60+ friends have been diagnosed as suffering from or approaching diabetes. Living out here in SW France, we consider we generally have a mediterranean diet (high fish, vegetable, pulse, nut diet) but the big attraction is the delicious wine produced all around us. It is therefore with great enthusiasm that we are meeting with Robin Ellis - the original Poldark - who has now added the new professions of cook and author on the topic of Pre-diabetic cookery. Preparing for this event, I've invested in two of his books: Healthy Eating for life and Mediterranean Cooking for Diabetics. Without doubt, the books are a great way to get motivated to review our menus!
