I made pumpkin soup for DH the other night that he said was yum. This is the recipe:
1 whole pumpkin, roughly diced (remove peel and seeds)
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly diced
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 onion, roughly chopped
2-3 sprigs fresh thyme (or 2 tsp of the gourmet garden paste)
6 cups of chicken stock (1.5L)
Sprinkle of peppercorns
Place all ingredients in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8hrs or high for 4hrs. When done, either purée with stick mixer or in the blender. Add cream to taste.
It was so easy to do. The only thing that made it take awhile was I didn't have enough chicken stock so had to go to the shops. Otherwise it only took about 20min to prepare and another 10min to purée at the end.
Subbing. Just bought my first ever slow cooker, so far I've made lamb shoulder massaman curry, and really rich bolognese sauce. So excited about the possibilities!
Chicken drumsticks, or thigh fillets
Cream of chicken, or cream of mushroom soup
Frozen mixed vegies
Small pasta spirals
Subbing always looking for new slow cooker recipes

Pea and ham soup. Ham hock (about $11) bag of split peas ($1.50) a stock cube ($0.50) 2 cloves of garlic ($0.25) 2 x carrots ($0.20) 2 x celery stalks ($0.50) and 2 bay leaves.
Other than rinsing the split peas, you just chuck it all in the slow cooker and wait!
$14 - feeds the 4 of us for 2 meals with maybe a little left over, and the kids love it!
I made an easy beef korma yesterday:
1 jar Pataks Korma paste (make sure it's the paste and not a simmer sauce)
1kg cubed beef
2 x onions, chopped
1 big tablespoon of ginger
2 x cans of coconut cream
Fry onions until soft, add paste & ginger and fry 2 mins, add beef cubes and cook until sealed, then add to slow cooker with coconut cream. Simmer on low all day.
It was quite saucy, so there's room for adding veg if you want to bulk it up a bit. Very tasty
