Lazy Food Slow Cooker Paste Pots | Review

Note - this is a collaborative post with Very Lazy. We were sent these items for the purpose of this review but all opinions are honest and my own. 

Being a Mum means that life is busy! School runs, washing, housework, clubs, baby sensory classes...the list goes on and on. Dinner is always a bit of a stress for me because I want to feed my family healthy, home cooked meals but sometimes that means having time to prep and cook which can prove challenging when you have a 4 year old and a 7 month old like I do. Thankfully, Very Lazy have come up with a solution for all of us stressed out, time pressed parents out there.
Very Lazy's Slow Cooker Paste Pots are a must have for any parent. These paste pots are basically little pots full of flavour that help you to create a delicious, healthy meal for all the family using just your slow cooker. Minimal fuss, minimal washing up...what more could you want??
There are 4 different paste pots to choose from and they are only available from Tesco for the amazing price of £2!! That's £2 the 3 paste pots you get inside each box!

Aromatic Thai Chicken Curry

Sausage & Lentil Casserole

Harissa Lamb Tagine

Chicken and Chorizo Stew

I decided that the first one I was going to make was the Aromatic Thai Curry and it didn't disappoint. The instructions on the box were so simple to follow and the dish didn't require much prep at all. The box also had a veggie recipe on it too which I thought was a great touch as there aren't a lot of veggie options out there for slow cookers. Once the minimal ingredients needed were chopped I simply threw it all in the slow cooker along with the paste pot (which smelt UNREAL!) and popped it on low. Fast forward to dinner time a few hours later and I had a gorgeously aromatic smelling, creaming looking curry ready and waiting.

The meal was a hit!! It was spicy enough to keep hubs interested but mild enough for Pickle and I as we aren’t the biggest fan of spicy foods. The meal was healthy, yummy and so easy to prep! I looked into the amount of prep I’d have to do if I made this meal from scratch with out the amazing paste post and I’d need to prep for at least 30 mins and cooking time (where I’d actually have to stand over the hob, not just chuck it in and go) was 90 minutes!!!!
I can’t recommend the Very Lazy Slow Cooker Paste Pots enough! They are amazing for busy families, working parents, busy people... basically everyone! Make sure you grab some when you do your food shop next (they are available exclusively in Tesco AND from 30th January 2018 until the 19th February 2018 they are half price so only £1!! ) and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
