The dinner theme in our house these days can be summarized by one word – easy!
Delicious? Sure that’s good too. And quick? A bonus. But most importantly, it has to be a meal that comes together with as little chiffonading and pan searing as possible.
And this is why I have really been singing the praises of the slow cooker. I guess this isn’t really a new love affair, but it’s one that has been on the back burner since I first learned the amazingness of this kitchen appliance when I cooked up some sticky and saucy sesame chicken
For the slow cooker to truly be easy, I think it really should be a set it and forget type of recipe. No sautéing onion and garlic, no browning of the meat. I want a true dump and go easy type of meal. And this soup is just that. The curry paste, coconut milk, peanut butter, and brown sugar add such a depth of flavour, there is no sautéing needed.
