Recipe

For a long time I have been a huge fan of A Year of Slow Cooking and her wealth of fabulous and easy slow cooker recipes, but to be honest, I wasn't so sure about this one when I first decided to try it. Chickpeas, black beans, sweet potatoes, honey, lemon, and spices - I wasn't sold but after reading her review and many others, I decided to take the plunge and try it out. And I am so glad I did. I made a few changes to the original using butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes and adding carrots and some paprika. I also left out the cream cheese but you couldn't definitely add a couple of tablespoons when it was finished cooking if you prefer a creamier sauce.
