Summer may seem like a weird time for crock pot recipes, but really it’s the perfect set up. You spend very little time in the kitchen and you don’t use your stove/oven. Win, win!
The best part is you cook once, with very little time of your own then you have a great meal for 2 people for 2-3 meals. I often cook one recipe and have it for 3 dinners (Sat, Mon & Wed.. my longest days) I can reheat it and have a kick ass dinner ready in just 4 mins.
Simply reheat on the stove top then serve it over raw spinach, chard or kale with goat cheese, walnut and avocado.
Here are 2 crock pot recipes that I use super often in the summer. CLICK on each below and enjoy!
Serve these up instead of using your outside grill. Two carcinogenic compounds (HCA’s + PAH’s) are formed with open flames and dry air.
** Pro Tip! Double the recipe – If you don’t have 2 crockpots- put the raw ingredients in a large freezer ziplock bag- simply freeze it until you are ready to cook again. Take it out of the freezer on a busy work morning, let it cook for up to 9 hours on low (no need to be home) and whallah, you’re set!
