Vegan Slow Cooker Chickpea & Sweet Potato Korma for Baby Led Feeding
I’m a working mum (and that is an understatement). I love to cook, but sometimes cooking can become a chore if I’m super busy. I’ve been talking with my lovely baby led feeding community lately and to my relief I’m not the only one who feels that way. So, when Dunnes Stores asked me to create some handy back to school dinners to make life easy I thought it couldn’t have come at a better time for me and you!
It’s so nice to know your not alone isn’t it?
To start with, I bought as many ingredients as I could from the Dunnes Stores Everyday Savers range from chickpeas to tinned tomatoes, peas, sweet potatoes for €1 and brown rice. I also doubled the ingredients below so I not only made one dinner but also another one for the freezer! Super super handy.
I have been inspired by you to create more slow cooker recipes (crock-pot recipes) that you can whip up in the morning, so that when the 5:00 pm chaos hits you’ll already have a healthy family dinner that is baby friendly ready to eat!
There is a very, very small amount of prep with this recipe since you’ll want to chop some onion, garlic, and ginger and give it a little cook to release the flavours. You could skip this step and just throw them in the pot, but you’ll loose a bit of flavour in the sauce that way.
I also like to use a stick blender for this recipe so that I can leave everything in the slow cooker, but you could use a blender or food processor too, this is just to smooth out the sauce. This honestly takes less than 15 minutes and the rest you can just sit back and wait for those delicious smells to waft through your house.
If I’m feeling really productive, when I measure out the spices I like to measure out a second set into a little container so that I can save it for the next time I make the korma. That way I don’t have to measure out the spices again.
If you don’t have four hours, this can be made in the oven at 150ºC (300ºF) for 2.5 hours.
PS. Don’t forger to add your frozen peas 10 minutes before it’s done!
