slow cooker gluten and dairy free turkey+ sweet potato stew

So as you many know-one of my new year’s resolutions was to add more variety to my diet. Lunch is a struggle for me in particular, as I like to keep things varied and not eat gluten-free bread every single day. One of the things I wanted to do more of, is batch cook and cook bigger meals; so I had plenty leftovers for lunch and to pop in the freezer.

I decided to turn to my trusty slow cooker and, if I’m honest, I just shoved a lot of things into the pot and hoped it turned out well! This gluten and dairy free slow cooker stew ended up being such a hit that I decided to go back and retrace my steps so I could share it in a recipe for you all today!

This delicious gluten free slow cooker stew is also dairy free and perfect for cold nights

As well being completely gluten and dairy-free, by a happy coincidence, it is also low calorie and suitable for those of you on Slimming World. Trade the chopped garlic for garlic infused oil and it’s suitable for a low FODMAP diet.

It can be enjoyed by itself or served with rice, bread or gluten-free couscous.

Nutrition Notes

                                             Pin to save for later.

  • Sweet potato and carrots are all an excellent source of soluble fibre; this type of fibre is much easier to digest than insoluble fibre. Up to 1/2 cup is also low FODMAP friendly (which should work out fine as this recipe serves at least 4.
  • If you are on a low residue diet, you should do well with cooked sweet potato and carrots but perhaps swap tinned tomatoes for a smoother passata instead.
  • This recipe is syn free and has 377 calories and 3.2g of fat per serving.

I hope you enjoyed this- do let me know if you give it a go yourself in the kitchen. You might also want to try a few more of my gluten and dairy free recipes.

    My New Years resolution was to use the slow cooker more. I think it will mean we eat healthier rather than grabbing something quick on the way home from work. Will be adding this one to my list. Thank you

    OMGosh looks sooo good! We’re vegetarian too, so I’m going to use tempura instead of turkey! Great that there are options for low-FODMAP! Thanks!
