I have always loved one-pot cooking. It is so convenient. Just dump it right in and cook. That's why I love my slow cooker. The ang-mohs call one-pot/one-dish meals as casseroles. Whatever the name, it really is a time saver.

Over the weekend, I turned on my slow cooker again and made more lentil soup. This soup is much richer than the previous Lentil and Ham Soup as it has lots of sausages in it. Initially, the soup tasted just right, but the leftovers can be quite salty. Perhaps when reheated, the water content reduces hence making it more concentrated. But otherwise, this is really a tasty and hearty soup which goes really well with a crusty bread.

Here's my Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage

Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage
(adapted from
450 gm dry green lentils
1 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes
1.4 litres of water
1 Knorr beef stock cube (optional)
1 carrot, diced
1 celery, diced
910 gm Polish sausages, cut into 1 cm pieces

1. Rinse and drain lentils, but do not soak. In a slow cokker, stir togehter the lentils, tomatoes, water, stock cube, carrot, celery and sausages.
2. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours or LOW for 6 to 7 hours.

Another dish I made was Betty Saw's Mixed Vegetable Curry. I added yong tau foo in just for some meat. Another good recipe for clearing whatever little bits of vegetables sitting idle in the fridge.
