So we all get to the point after Christmas that your left with lots of bits left over with not really much idea of what to make out of it. Then I saw the lovely Utterly Scrummy had a recipe for a turkey curry which sounded delicious! However some of the original ingredients I didn’t have so I decided to do a bit of cupboard rummaging and coming up with a slightly altered version.
Here was ours :
- 500g Left over turkey
- 2 Tins of chopped tomatoes
- 2 Carrots - peeled and chopped
- 1 Onion - peeled and chopped
- 50ml water
- 1 Clove of garlic - crushed
- 1 Tin of Butterbeans
- 1tsp Curry Powder
- Pop it all in the slow cooker on low and leave to cook for 6 hours (really that simple!)
Serve this with rice and you have the easiest post Christmas meal going!
I did find that it wasn’t as spicy as i would normally eat so next time I would probably add a little bit more spice to give it that little kick but that is all down to perosnal taste.
I would recommend heading to Utterly Scrummy for more inspirational meals including how to feed a family of 5 for 7 days during the school holidays for £70!
