the slimming world morrocan stew on their website I slow cooker that which is nice
I also do veggie chilli with beans or lentils. lentil ragu www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1139652/lentil-ragu
I just halve the recipe
also lentils or grated carrot are great for thicken sauces as they break down whilst cooking thickening sauce or you could blend some of what you've cook then put it back in the pot too help thicken it that way.
