Place onion, garlic, eggplant, capsicum, celery, carrot, zucchini, tomatoes, paste, rosemary and stock in a 4.5-litre (18-cup) slow cooker; stir to combine.


Wrap each potato, separately, in foil; place on top of vegetable mixture in cooker. Cook, covered, on low for 8 hours.


Carefully remove potatoes; when cool enough to handle, discard foil. Season vegetable ‘bolognese’ to taste.


Cut lengthways down centre of each potato; press down lightly on a board to open potato slightly. Place potatoes on serving plates; top with vegetable ‘bolognese’ and parsley.

This would be a great way to make baked potatoes for a large crowd, filling your cooker with potatoes until three-quarters full. Serve them straight from the cooker.

Serve with parmesan crisps and sour cream.
