Winter, the season of slow cooking. Throw it together the night before, flick the slow cook switch before work. Tasty, nutritious meal when you arrive home. Yay!
A healthy take on Jamie Oliver’s famous lamb shoulder. Great with cauliflower mash & steamed greens.

- 2 sticks celery, cut into pieces
- 1 large leek, trimmed, cut into 4cm pieces
- 2 tablespoons tamari
- Preheat oven to 180deg C (fan forced) or 200deg C
