I made my first recipe from our September VegCookbook, The Vegan Slow Cooker – the Cheater Chili _ and learned that my slow cooker runs hot.
I’ve only used my slow cookers (I have two – wedding gifts) a handful of times. Aside from when I’ve made soup (which works great) everything else has been rather dry and burned, like this chili recipe.
I’ve always wondered if I was just choosing bad recipes, or doing something wrong, but Kathy’s slow cooker tips guest post made made me realize — I have a hot slow cooker! So, moving forward, I’m going to experiment with cooking recipes for less time, adding more liquid as they cook, and making sure I’m using the correct size slow cooker.
Yay for culinary learning! I’m very excited to master my slow cookers,
What did you VegCook this week?
