APPLE, KALE, AND SAUSAGE STEW

Even with the warmer weather, the slow cooker can be a great way to not turn your oven on and produce that extra heat. It keeps things simple for a busy day or night when you want a light bite, without the stress of complicated cooking. You can spice things up in this apple, kale, and sausage stew as much as desired, or keep it cool. Chicken, veggie or vegan sausage works well here.
