Recipe notes

Don't let my recipe bog you down. Use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge and add a freshly chopped chilli if you're not cooking for little ones or big 'sensitive' folk.  

If using the slow cooker pop all ingredients into slow cooker after step 6 and carry on. Slow cooker will need at least double the cooking time on low. I have made this recipe successfully by putting the slow cooker on before bed or work.

  • Dish is cooked when rice is soft. Don't overcook and cooking times may vary according to oven temperatures and pot.
  • Can be frozen although with such a high water content it is not the best option
  • Please don't use peas. They really don't suit slow cooking as they turn a nasty shade of grey and overcook quickly!
