I fancied meaty, tomatoey and deep flavour so threw together a bolognese first thing in the morning for the slow cooker. Ten hours later a rich stew awaits me. YUM.

Spaghetti bolognese for the slow cooker:

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, sliced

1 carrot, diced

1 celery stick, diced

500g beef mince

1 tablespoon flour

1 tin tomatoes

1 tablespoon tomato puree

A little bay, thyme and oregano

100ml red wine

100ml beef stock

  1. Cook the veg in a frying pan for a couple of minutes. Add the mince and brown, then add the flour and cook for a minute.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring everything to the simmer then add to the slow cooker. Leave for at least 8 hours, and serve with pasta, shredded basil leaves and grated cheese.
