Slow Cooker Chana Masala

Here we are.  We made it!  It’s 2017.  We’re right at the start of another new year, and if you’re anything like me, you’re looking back on the last month of food you consumed and are thinking “Wow. That was a lot of cheese.”  Not that there’s anything wrong with cheese, but you know what I mean.  The new year has arrived, and it’s time to step away from the gluttony of the holidays for a bit!

Sometimes, a recipe comes along and stops us all in our tracks.  This is one of those recipes.  I grabbed this recipe from my Skinnytaste cookbook, whipped it up for dinner, and my husband couldn’t stop talking about it.  There are a lot of slow-cooker-taco-filling recipes out there, but this one holds a special place in our hearts, and now, our recipe box.  It’s really, really tasty, and when you feel like you need to lighten up, and freshen up, your fall meal routine, this is a great place to start.

I’ve recently come across a pretty spectacular cookbook find.  It’s so great, in fact, that I could probably cook from it every night of the week and be perfectly content.  When I first look through a cookbook, I dog ear the pages of recipes I’d like to make.  After I closed this book, almost every page corner was turned down.  Which book, you ask?  The Skinnytaste Cookbook, by Gina Homolka.  I’ve been a fan of Gina’s blog for years, and I’d heard that she’d put out a cookbook, but I hadn’t gotten my hands on it until a couple of weeks ago.
