All year long, the slow cooker has a role in your kitchen. In the summer it can turn berries into magenta-hued sauces to ladle over ice cream. In the fall, it’s the a hospitality sidekick, offering warm cups of mulled cider to friends on blustery evenings; in the winter, it turns tough cuts of meat into meltingly tender stews and braises; and in spring, it can help you transition into fresher eats with light soups.
In January, when our kitchens are filled with intentions to eat wholesome food that will nourish us after the richness of the holiday season, the slow cooker is there again to provide some assistance. The five recipes in this collection want to help you cook meals — be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner — that make you feel good. You’ll find a slew of vegetables, legumes, and flavors sparked with spices.
Thanks to the slow cooker, these are meals to make you feel good with ease.
