Not a direct reply, but whatever you do, DO NOT try to cook pulses/beans in the SC - other than re-heating pre-cooked or tins.

Pasta sauce - fry onions garlic and spices first then slow cook for a couple of hours with tomato etc, delicious
Risotto - cook mushroom and onions etc first then
Chuck in with rice, stock and seasoning, one hour on high
Soup - any kind
Curry - cook onion garlic and spices first then chuck in with veg, tomato and flavours like lime juice/coconut or whatever you like

Veg curry - any root veg chopped up and covered with a jar of your favourite curry sauce. Chuck in a tin of chickpeas if you feel you need it.

Real lentil daal works well in the slow cooker.

DH has made this a couple of times, and it’s always turned out really well.
