Slow Cooker Vegetarian Curry

This curry is one of my staple winter meals, it's so tasty and super easy too! I love that you can add whatever veggies you have in the fridge and turn it into a nourishing meal. 

Chickpeas are a great vegetarian source of plant based protein. Regardless if you follow a vegetarian diet or not I think it is important to include 1-2 meat-less meals into your diet each week. However, you can totally turn this into a non-vegetarian meal by adding your favourite animal protein source. I have made this curry before using chicken thighs and it was amazing! 


NOTES:

  • Substitute the broccoli and peas for any of your favourite vegetables. Eggplant, cauliflower and brussel sprouts are also delicious in this curry.
  • I love using a slow cooker for this recipe as it make it super easy (and the house smells amazing!). However if you don't have a slow cooker, use an oven proof dish and bake for 60-90 minutes.
