Party Mix…from a Slow-Cooker? Yes Indeed!

***MADE ANOTHER BATCH OF THIS SLOW COOKER PARTY MIX RECENTLY AND THOUGHT I’D SHARE THE RECIPE/POST AGAIN, HERE AT VEGGIES. ***

IT’S SO GOOD AND SO EASY TO MAKE IN THE SLOW COOKER!

HAPPY COOKING. :>)

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

As any of my regular readers already know, I am a big fan and recent convert to using a Slow-Cooker for all kinds of main dishes, stews  and soups.

But did you know that you can use a Slow-Cooker for making recipes like: granola and party-mix too?

Well I didn’t until I recently received a copy of Robin Robertson’s: Fresh From the Vegan Slow-Cooker as a gift.

After scanning through all the great recipes in this new cookbook, I knew I’d have to give the: Life of the Party Mixa try first. It came out great! So delish and not too salty (great to be able to control that when you make this mix at home).

Party Mix…from a Slow-Cooker? Yes Indeed!

Some minor tweaks I made:

After the initial 2 hours on high heat, I found the texture to be just right and the flavours well-developed, so I stopped the cooking process and just let the mix cool completely before storing. Not that it was stored long! The photo above is from Flickr ’cause I didn’t manage a photo here before it was all gone LOL. 😉

A couple of other things: I omitted the onion powder and cayenne and bumped up the Tabasco to 1 teaspoon. I didn’t add any salt as the nuts and pretzels I used were salted.

If you’re starting to think about party fare with the holidays just around the corner, you should definitely give this recipe a try. And what a great way to use your slow-cooker! 🙂
