January is Soup month. And today is another family Favorite – my version of Minestrone Soup. If you Goggle this Soup you will come up with many different recipes but basically it’s a Vegetable Soup – my version is made with whatever I have in the pantry and fridge all cooked low and slow in a Slow cooker. .

My favorite Slow Cooker : https://capitaloneshopping.com/p/hamilton-beach-33969-a-set-n-for/NTWWMMTL57?run=86ab008e-0416-4942-81d5-c249711ede62
Why I love my Slow Cooker
? I am on my 3 rd one but this one has all the bells and whistles and have become my favorite. It offers the basics and a handful of special features, like a thermometer probe for cooking to temperature and lid clips for safe and easy transport. I strongly recommend this slow cooker to anyone looking for a uncomplicated, traditional approach to cooking slowly.
My Slow Cooked Recipe;
- 1 onion chopped fine
- 1 bell pepper chopped
- 2 ribs of chopped celery
- 1 lb Hot Sausage , Cut in 1 inch rounds
- 1 can diced tomato’s
- 1 can Mixed 3 Beans (drained)
- 1 can Chickpeas ( drained)
- 1 can of Mixed vegetables (drain)
- 1 Can of sliced potato
- 4 C vegetable stock
- 2 C of water
- 1 Tablespoon of mixed Italian seasoning
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 gloves of mashes garlic
- 2 C of sliced Cabbage
- Elbow Noodles : I I like to cook mine separate from the Soup.
I like to put it all in my Crockpot except the Cabbage. And let it cook about 5 hours on Low before adding the Cabbage and let it cook another 2 to 3 hours. If you are in a hurry you can set your Cookpot on High for 3-4 hours.
