Oven Bag Vegetables (and multi meals)


June 18, 2016

Oven bags are great for vegetables on the side of mains in your slow cooker, or multiple mains at once!

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 3 hrs 30 mins
  • Yields: 5


1 oven bag

Rough cut vegetable selection

I used:

- washed potatoes with skin on

- carrot

- pumpkin

- sweet potato

2 tbsp water


1Place peeled and washed vegetables of your choice in oven bag

2Add 2 tbsp of water into bag just to help steaming in bag

3You could also add butter or garlic or herbs etc if you like

4Add one cup of water to base of slow cooker

5Twist oven bag closed at top but pierce in two places near top/twist

6Sit bag (or bags - see below) in the shallow water of slow cooker with twist at top near the lid

7Cover with slow cooker lid

8Vegetables took approx 3.5hrs on high to reach tender

9Open bag with care for hot steam


1This method can be used to cook vegetables on the side of a main dish in another bag. Or two main dishes at once eg a less spicy main for children and a hotter one for adults, or just two dishes at once for serving various tastes in your dinner guests.

2Bonus - next to no clean up!

3Only use oven bags for this purpose, no other bags that are not suitable for cooking in.

4Some (not most) slow cookers will specify not to use oven bags in them, so check your user manual first to be sure it's right for yours

Can you do rice in an oven bag as a side to massaman beef

I found this online for you 🙂
“Cookware that contains aluminum or iron can react with the potatoes to change their color. Stainless steel cookware helps prevent this problem.
Cooked potatoes may be soaked in a small amount of lemon juice and covered in a pan to prevent post-cooking reactions that cause discoloration.
Black potatoes are safe for consumption and contain the same amount of nutrients as potatoes that are a normal color.”
