Curried Vegan Sausages with Apricots and Almonds

Cold food is nice when the weather starts warming up. This time of year I always love to do lots of salads and cooling foods, but I still occasionally love something with a kick of heat – both temperature and spice. Summer is finally right around the corner, so turning on the oven seems like a crime when it’s above 80 degrees. Solution? The slow cooker.

These curried vegan sausages with apricots and almonds lent themselves perfectly to the slow cooker. Simmering in flavorful sauce for several hours made the house smell amazing without raising the ambient temperature. The only problem with slow cooking is that it smells so good it’s hard to wait for dinner time. As far as difficulty goes, that’s about it with such easy recipes!
