Yesterday I talked about boxed tomato-red pepper soup. I add basil, chopped, seeded tomatoes, and blue cheese. If I need to stretch it out I add some milk.
Top with sour cream or Parm.
Crock pot cookbooks are full of soup recipes. Throw ingredients in a pot and turn the pot on. Be careful, some crockpots have two Knobs.
Beef and vegetable soup
1pd ground beef, cooked with onion and garlic. (I cook ground meats when I get home from the grocery store and divide it into meal proportions).
2cups cabbage and carrots mixed, shredded
10 ounces frozen corn
4cups tomato juice
1can diced tomatoes
Basil, pepper, w sauce.
Cook on low 8-10 hours.
This is from bH&g crockery cookbook. It could price out as expensive. I would use a can of green beans and substitute a can of diced tomatoes with some stock whirled in the blender.
Manhattan clam chowder
2 6 oz cans of clams, drained, save juice
Drained clam liquid
2cups potatoes, cubes
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1can diced tomato
2T Italian seasoning
1- 10 oz can of tomato juice
Salt, thyme and bay leaf
Dump everything EXCEPT the clams in the crockpot.
Cook on low 8-10hours or on high 4-5 hours
When ready to eat,turn pot up to high, add clams and cook 5 minutes.discard bay leaf.
Garnish with crumbled bacon if desired.
That's all for now
