Serving: 5
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 3 hrs 30 mins
Total Time 3 hrs 40 mins

Ingredients
 

  • 1 oven bag
  • Rough cut vegetable selection
  • I used:
  • - washed potatoes with skin on
  • - carrot
  • - pumpkin
  • - sweet potato
  • 2 tbsp water

Instructions
 

  • Place peeled and washed vegetables of your choice in oven bag
  • Add 2 tbsp of water into bag just to help steaming in bag
  • You could also add butter or garlic or herbs etc if you like
  • Add one cup of water to base of slow cooker
  • Twist oven bag closed at top but pierce in two places near top/twist
  • Sit bag (or bags - see below) in the shallow water of slow cooker with twist at top near the lid
  • Cover with slow cooker lid
  • Vegetables took approx 3.5hrs on high to reach tender
  • Open bag with care for hot steam

Notes

  • This 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.
  • Bonus - next to no clean up!
  • Only use oven bags for this purpose, no other bags that are not suitable for cooking in.
  • Some (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

    I find this great for most veg but when I did potatoes the edges that were not under liquid went black …was this just bad luck?

    1. 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.”
