Pull out the slow cooker for this easy to prepare, but oh so tasty and warming dish. Take this basic recipe, add your own favourite vegetables, and make this a family favourite.
This was made for two, but can be scaled up for just about any number... as many as your cooker will hold. You can add as many different vegetables to this as you like, and spice it in different ways - mustard is a nice additive.
