Crock Pot Soup

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

In our house cold weather signals the time for a hardy and healthy winter soup!  My grandmother (RIP Mama), used to make the best homemade vegetable soups, I can still taste the seasoned carrots, tomatoes, onions, celery and of course the soup bone with marrow.  I was looking for new recipes and came across one that included kale which is my favorite vegetable.

ImageIngredients:

kale, soup beans, canned tomatoes, garlic, frozen veggies and soup stock.

I was going to use the smoked turkey necks but there wasn’t enough room in the pot.  I had to use a larger crock pot because the bag of beans which had soaked overnight really expanded and I didn’t want to discard any of them.  After spraying the crock pot with cooking spray I poured in the frozen veggies, beans, tomatoes, a spoonful of garlic and then topped with handfuls of kale.  One packet of the homestyle stock was dissolved in warm water enough to cover the beans.

Cooked on low for 8-10 hours.

I came home to a house smelling GOOD and a fully prepared dinner!  This soup was healthy, delicious and very filling, hubby topped his with a little Goat Cheese and I added a piece of brown bread (carbs are my down fall) and hot sauce!
