Sometimes you don't have the time or patience for a recipe (or you just have some leftover ingredients). This chart shows you a simple formula to put together any slow cooker meal.
Essentially, a good slow cooker meal has five basic ingredients:
- Protein (beans, tofu, meat)
- Liquid (including beer and wine)
- Herbs (dried or fresh)
- Flavour boosters like parmesan
The chart lists a few examples for each section, but you can experiment with the formula using what you have in the fridge and improvise. (It claims you can make 3125 meals, though we only count 25. We're not sure where Prevention's maths came from.)
