View Full Version : Minestrone--in a crockpot?

02-03-2009, 03:02 PM
This being home every day is getting dangerous--now I'm cooking!! I was going through some recipes and found one for Minestrone soup. I got all the stuff together and began--but don't see to have my "big stock pot" (one of the joys of having children??). Anyway, since I was already started, I put everything in my crockpot--hope it comes out ok--anyone else ever make soup from scratch in a crock pot??:baffled:

yup, I;ve made beef stew, chicken soup and a garden veggie soup in my crock pot, they all come out fine. so, whens soup on??

Yes...I've either cooked all day on low, or turn up on high to get it done quicker.

I make soup in the crockpot all the time. It's great that way.

I've never had this kind of soup before. Nathan isn't a big soup fan so I don't make it very often.

It looks like it's fine--so I'll be bringing more than half of it will be going to my dd's tomorrow. mmmmm Thanks for all your encouragement--I still think potatoe chips and a nutrient rich dip would be just as good!! With a diet coke on the side of course!!
