I love having a Slow Cooker on days when I teach late, because I can come home to a lovely smelling and healthy dinner without all the hard work. This soup does require a little blitz with a hand-mixer, but it is nice as a chunky soup as well.
Usually carrot isn’t an exciting food, and my husband was very suspicious. But carrot is great in spicy dishes, so I add a bit of pepper and tobacco to make it healthy and something special.
- 1 large onion, diced
- 4 carrots, chopped
- 3 turnips, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 2 1/3 cups of vegetable or chicken stock (I used stock I froze)
- 1 tbsp sage
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 2 tbsp pepper
- 1 tbsp tabasco (or more to your taste)
Put everything in the Slow Cooker and Cook on Low for 6-8 hours.
