When the cold weather hits there is nothing more hearty than something that cooks all day, smells amazing all day and fills everyone up at the end of the day. This one ticks all those boxes and more plus it is perfect for #meatlessmondays.

We wrote a slow cooker book a couple of winters ago now (Go Slower) and this is one of the stunning recipes. If you don't have that cookbook yet, it is time to join the Insider Club and get it for free or go and purchase it. Easy meals for busy families with just a little forethought!

If Lima Beans aren't your thing (who doesn't love a big bowl of buttery creamy lima beans?) then by all means, use any beans that your family enjoys in their place.

We invite you to come join our FREE TRIAL on the Insider Club to have extra Thermomixery each and every month! #recipesthatwork #youcandoit
