7 Easy Slow Cooker Recipes to Beat the Winter Blues

It might be cold outside, but it’s warm in the kitchen. The last thing you want to do after a long day is make dinner. Yes, you’d rather Netflix and chill in bed (who wouldn’t?), but you’ve gotta eat too. Don’t throw in the towel and order takeout - instead, whip up something scrumptious that’ll also produce leftovers to spare.

Get that slow cooker ready. We’ve rounded up our favourite slow cooker recipes to beat the winter blues, and luckily for you the recipes are so easy all you have to do is prep, set, and go. While you binge watch your favourite new show, your dinner will be simmering and cooking away. Crunched on time? Prep in the evening then throw everything into the slow cooker in the morning and set it. Once you get home, you’ll have a mouthwatering homemade meal waiting to be devoured. Bonne appétit!
