Vegetarian food is more than just salad. Great vegetarian dishes can be savoury, sweet or even spicy. For your next vegetarian nosh, take inspiration from the East and experiment with easy curries for a dish that will even please meat lovers.
Remember, simmering is key when it comes to creating a great curry dish. Allowing the spices to infuse all of the ingredients in the dish creates an extra dimension of flavour.
For best results, simmer your meal to perfection slowly without having to watch the stove with a Crock-Pot branded slow cooker The only thing you'll need to do is pick up enough Naan bread to accompany the dish.
