Slow Cooking

When you think slow Cooking you are instantly reminded of a old age practice done by your mother’s mother’s mother. But let me tell you, slow Cooking is making a comeback in a big (and more trendier) way. Here is why I say so. Boldly.

So, I’ve recently decided to invest in a slow cooker (yes, everything I buy I see as an investment) because I have someone very close to me whose life is just easier because of a slow cooker.

Apart from the fact that you don’t stand in front of a stove for 30-40minutes, when life gets too busy, you know with studies, commitments, work, assignments, you know how it goes, there really is no time to be chopping and frying and cooking after coming home when so much still has to be done in your day.

And because I’m (trying to) get the most goodness out of everything I eat daily, having a slow cooker prevents me from buying fast food or taking the easy way out and throwing something easy in the oven. Because now before I leave for work I get my ingredients for the cooker, put them in, spice it up and there I go about my day, coming home to a cooked meal thanks to my slow cooker.

Apart from saving time, cooking food in a slow cooker with its slow and steady heat over 4-8 hours, most if not all the nutrients is retained and kept in tact as opposed to vigorous boiling that makes losing nutrients easier. And as a bonus the sealed in moisture also sort of let lost nutrients be re-absorbed into the food (major bonus).

So no, I did not buy a slow cooker because I’m lazy to cook or had money laying around, it’s literally a time saver to do more of what I love or start doing new things and get the benefits of a good home cooked meal.

I recently tried a split pea soup. Here is the recipe to try as well if you have a slow cooker and happen to love soup like me.

Enjoy!
