Caribbean pepperpot stew slow cooker tips
This healthy Caribbean pepperpot stew slow cooker recipe is easy to prepare in a few minutes for a tasty meal later in the day.
Before you start to think about recipes with your slow cooker here are a few tips which may help. If you find your meal is a bit watery take the lid off the slow cooker and turn it up high for half an hour this can help evaporate some of the water.
Using Slow cooker liners can save washing up if you are making something that often sticks.
Remember that nothing evaporates so you may need less liquid than in other recipes eg on the hob.

Why you need vegetables to lose weight
Everyone knows vegetables are good for you, don’t they? They are healthy and filling for very few calories!
The best vegetables are those with low-calorie density.
This means if you eat 100g of spinach, for example, it is just 23 calories and 100g of crisps, which would be just as filling, is around 536 calories!

Making a vegetarian Caribbean pepperpot stew
This meal can easily be made vegetarian by using Hendersons relish instead of Worcestershire sauce and a substitute for the beef. Instead of beef using young jackfruit would work well or alternatively a Quorn beef style product. If using Quorn it will need less time in the slow cooker to cook thoroughly so do keep an eye on that.
An easy way to make a meal vegetarian is to swap the meat for a vegetarian alternative such as Quorn. Other possible swaps are for jackfruit, lentils, chickpeas, mixed beans or just extra vegetables.
I have been a vegetarian since I was 10 years old and enjoy a huge variety of food so whatever you do, don’t let being vegetarian mean you need to eat a boring diet.
