One of my favorite things to make is vegetable soup in a slow cooker. The magic of this it that you just put a bunch a delicious ingredients in the slow cooker before work, turn in on low, and presto you have dinner ready when you get home! Love it!
1 carton of vegetable broth (you can sub chicken broth or beef broth of 4 cups homemade stock)
1 can of red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 c. frozen corn
1/2 c. frozen peas
1 can green beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium onion, diced
1 tsp minced garlic
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced (or cheat and use canned potatoes, I won't tell)
1 can tomato sauce
1 tbsp tomato paste
Add all ingredients to slow cooker and stir. Add salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with Italian seasoning and 1 bay leaf. Turn slow cooker to low.
This makes a LOT of soup, so either invite over some friends or prepare for leftovers!
