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!
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.

If you add too much water by mistake, add a sprinkle of gluten free flour to thicken.

Leave on slow for approximately 8 hours and then serve!
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.
