Tasty Tuesday’s Veritable Vegetable Feast

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in. Apologies once again for the disaster yesterday and also for not actually getting round to rewriting it. If I am honest, I started the rewrite and then was so annoyed that I had lost the first version, I kind of deleted the page in a fit of pique :-/

This means I shall have the piece that was meant for yesterday written and posted for you tomorrow and I shall hopefully take a walk with Archie the Dog to a new place I have discovered with a castle along the route and that will be our Sunday Stroll written for you, even if it is a couple of days late 😉

So then, what do we have for you on this weeks Tasty Tuesday? Well if reading the title you get the feeling there might be vegetables in it, you would be spot on.

Slow Cooked Chicken and Vegetable Paella


  1. 3 medium sized Sweet Potatoes finely chopped
  2. 300gms Mediterranean Chicken chopped
  3. 2 Onions finely chopped
  4. 4 Garlic Cloves finely chopped
  5. 250gms Risotto Rice
  6. 1200mls Vegetable Stock
  7. 150gms Green Beans finely chopped
  8. 150gms Garden Peas
  9. 2 Red Chilli’s finely chopped and deseeded
  10. 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  11. 1 Large slug of White Wine Vinegar.
  12. Salt and Cracked Black Pepper to season


Finely chop the Green Beans.


Shell the Garden Peas.


Peel the Sweet Potatoes.


Finely chop the Sweet Potatoes.


Add the Sweet Potatoes to the slow cooker pot.


Finely chop the Onion.


And then add to the slow cooker pot.


Finely chop the Garlic Cloves and the Red Chilli’s.


Add add these to the slow cooker pot.


Along with a teaspoon of Chilli Powder.

And add to the slow cooker pot.


Along with a slug of White Wine Vinegar.


Season with Salt and Cracked Black Pepper.


Add the Vegetable Stock.


Followed by the 250gms of Risotto Rice.


Mix in well together. Place the pot into the slow cooker case and put on the high setting for an hour.


At which point you can add the Green Beans and Peas.


Continue to cook for a further hour and 45 minutes and then serve.


Eh Voila!

I must confess however that I did leave my rice in a little too long and it started to blow up before I remembered that I was cooking! Still, no drama’s as it gave a nice creamy texture to it and allowed the flavours to really flow through the dish.

Food from Sunday was pretty good considering I went to an Autumn Food Fayre! I only ate two mouthfuls of Apple pie which when you consider how nice it was and completely freshly made in front of my yes! Then the only other indulgence was a couple of Wantage Sausages made by a local butcher. High quality meats with Black Pudding in the mix for a little spice. Mmmmmm LUSH!
Still, I didn’t go overboard, I just had a couple and then left the food well alone. Come back tomorrow for a write up on the Fayre.

I did take the dog out for a walk on Sunday but he was so uninterested that I had to take him home after just a mile and a half. This means that my steps were a little light even with the trekking around the Autumn Fayre, but in the end I was able to cover a reasonable distance of just under 9,000 steps.


So I shall be back in the morning for a write up of the Fayre so please do join me.

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

    Another tasty looking recipe, bravo! However, we Americans do not have the metric system so I will have to look up how much 250mgs and such are so I can make this! I think we did try to do the metric system when I was in eighth grade, but it went the way of the wind! My measuring cup has both I believe. Having said all that, thanks Cameron for another tasty Tuesday!
