"Cystal yfed o'r cawl â bwyta's cig" - It is as good to drink the broth as to eat the meat --Cattwg the Wise. Cawl (pronounced 'cowl') is just like any other old farmhouse soup or stew. We pick up whatever is in season, chuck it in a pot and boil it for a day, then guzzle it up the next day and moan about how much our belly aches afterwards.

A traditional Welsh cawl recipe made in the slow cooker. This slow cooker cawl couldn't be easier! Feel free to add leek instead of onion, if desired, and make sure to save some leftovers - cawl is even better the next day!

This traditional recipe is derived from the local farming community of Cardiganshire (Ceredigion). There are regional variations throughout Wales as to what meat is used; some use pork or mutton, but we use shin beef. The quantities used here are based on my own requirements for two to three days, as this soup is one that improves on subsequent re-heating. Serve with lightly buttered bread and a good mature Cheddar cheese.

A veggie version of Welsh cawl. A brilliant winter warmer. Serve with a large dollop of houmous and garlic bread, or a chunk of wholemeal bread with parsley butter.
