The Vegan Slow Cooker Week 1

I've cooked from this before and enjoyed it more than Kathy's other book (Vegan Slow Cooking For 2 Or Just For You), I will be revisiting some old favourites and trying out some new recipes. This week I have made 3 recipes. Here's what I thought:

Creamy Potato Soup
This is a new recipe for me and it was OK, it had a nice flavour and was quite filling. It reminded me of a much thinner mash potato. It was good, but not something I would make again

Soy Chorizo Black Bean Stew
I made this last time and forgot how good it was, I used the same ingredients as last time (Wheaty Space Bar Chorizo for the Chorizo etc) and really enjoyed it, it was full of flavour and warmth but without too much fire. Great recipe (it doesn't look good, but you can always eat it with your eyes closed):

Meatless Sausage and Mushroom Ragout
This was my favourite recipe of the week, I wasn't sure if I would like it but when I arrived home it smelled delicious and tasted great. I used Linda McCartney Red Onion & Rosemary sausage for the sausages and they worked brilliantly. As with the Chorizo Stew I will be making this again:
