Slow cooker vegetable curry
Nothing beats a classic warming vegetable curry. This fabulous freezable recipe is best served with a warm flatbread for mopping up the creamy coconut sauce. As with any curry, the flavours only intensify with time, so the leftovers are just as delicious the next day. Veggies, vegans and meat-eaters alike will love this indulgent dish. Chuck away the Friday night takeaway menu and embrace the art of the slow-cooked curry.
