There is a service I’ve come across recently that I’m prepared to call the holy grail for all parents or working individuals seeking an easier and healthier lifestyle.
Let it sink in, because it’ll become your best kept secret if you let it.
We all know that slow cooking is the way forward. It’s time-saving and ultimately healthier because everything is fresh and home cooked.
It’s easy cooking at its best.
But there’s better.
And there’s easier.
While I love slow cooking, the prep can be really quite time-consuming, which often makes it seem like too much effort if you want to get everything bubbling away early morning.
Everything needs to be bought from the supermarket, carefully measured out (resulting in waste), sliced, diced and ready to go into a slow cooker. Including the butternut squash I needed for a butternut squash risotto I was making, which nearly resulted in the loss of a finger or two.
Take the hardship away and I’m all for slow cooking.
And that is exactly what SlowCook Chef have done.
They are an online slow cooker recipe kit delivery company. They come up with the most amazing array of recipes you can choose from and they deliver the ingredients ready prepped to be used in your slow cooker. (Including those annoying vegetables part of the squash family. No more threatening knives need be used!).
And I couldn’t be more in love with the service.
Thai green chicken curry suit you? How about honey chicken wings? Or a Mexican inspired dish with a rancheros pie?
All a bit more exciting than your traditional stew right?
Well I gave all three dishes a whirl made lovingly in my slow cooker.
And yes it was easy. So easy.
I followed the simple recipe card for each different dish using the colour coded ingredients that were vacuum sealed for freshness and pre portioned. So there was no chance of mixing up the ingredients for the variety of dishes I had ordered.
And with preparation time taking between 5-20 minutes it meant I didn’t have to slave in the kitchen at any point. In fact the most I had to do was just fry off some meat that was already sliced and diced for me. Now that’s my kind of cooking!
If you fancy checking out the service I have a few little voucher codes exclusive for The London Mum readers.
