Brazilian curry - slow cooker recipe

Updated: Sep 17, 2019

If you want to eat healthy with minimum effort, cooking your food in a slow cooker is the way to go.

You just pop in all ingredients, get busy doing other stuff for a few hours and tadaa...dinner is ready. They're awesome.

This is one of my favorite slow cooker dishes (that also can be made on the stove on low heat, although cooking time may vary).

It's good over rice, with potatoes or just plain out of a bowl.
