What a Vegetarian Does with a BBQ, Part 8. Cooks Lentils, of course. A recipe for slow braised lentils.
When I made Ma di Dal last week, I wondered how the BBQ would cope with cooking such a dish slowly for several hours. I tried it, and am so pleased with the results. I believe it is better than the slow cooker!! Continue reading
I had been wanting to cook bread in the BBQ for a while. Accordingly, the Internet says that it is possible, and I was keen to try it. There is something so special about the scent of bread cooking – and floating from our balcony over to our neighbours. I am sure they wondered what we were up to.

I have had a slow cooker most of my cooking life, and have an ancient, orange one that still sits on my shelves. It is just that the Rice Cooker Slow setting is so convenient, always sitting on my benchtop. I have used it to make yoghurt, cook unsoaked chickpeas for freezing, rice congee, porridge and soups. I find that for most things except the chickpeas, it is good to place them into a saucepan and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes or more while you potter around the kitchen getting your meal ready. It seems to balance the flavours and “complete” the dish more than serving straight from the cooker.
So here is a recipe for Turtle Bean Soup, Slow Cooked in the Rice Cooker. Turtle Beans have a dense, earthy texture and flavor, slightly salty and reminiscent of mushrooms. Click through to read more….. Continue reading
