    Sorry, I can't help, as I use my slow cooker to cook vegetarians (e.g. meat).

    Slow cookers are especially good for cooking tough cuts of meat.

    Most vegetables don't need the slow cooking as far as I know, although almost any vegetable stew would do nicely.

    My standard recipe is to chuck in some onions and a tin of tomatoes and any vegetables too slow to get out of the way. Plus lots of L&P sauce.

    A slow cooker would be good for raw beans such as kidney beans, but given the risk of poisoning if they aren't fully cooked I always use tins. Pulses work well, as well, if your system can take them.

    Here's a pix of a chicken curry and a mix of veggies that we cooked awhile back.
