Well, this is a keeper!! So simple to prep, I used a bag of frozen stew veg instead of swede, onion and carrot and didn’t have any spinach so didn’t add that at the end. Even my 4 year old who yucks everything gobbled it up! I’ve frozen loads for pie, pasta, mashed potato or rice. An absolute stable thank you

With my daughter recently starting a low fodmap diet meal planning has been tricky. Thank you slow cooker central for this delicious recipe. Gluten free and lactose free was brilliant. I did leave out the onion and substituted with the green part of the spring onion to cater to my daughters dietary requirements. Yum yum yum family hit!!!
