Slow Cooker Savory Soup
Savory Soup is one of my absolute all time favorites. Itís loaded with superfoods, spices and all things good.
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 6 hours
|2 cups||sliced carrots|
|1||large sweet potato, cut into 1/2" cubes|
|1 cup||fresh or frozen green beans|
|1/2 cup||fresh cilantro, chopped|
|1||small onion, diced|
|1 clove||garlic, minced|
|2 (15-ounce) cans||black beans, drained and rinsed|
|1/2 teaspoon||crushed red pepper flake|
|1/2 teaspoon||black pepper|
|1 teaspoon||chili powder|
|sea, kosher or salt, to taste|
|2 cups||organic vegetable juice|
|2 cups||organic vegetable broth, low-sodium|
|Cheddar cheese, for topping (optional)|
Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker, cover and cook on low 6-8 hours, or until veggies are tender. Add a tablespoon of cheddar cheese, if desired.
NOTE: If you prefer a less subtle onion and garlic taste, saute onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute 1 additional minute. Add to slow cooker along with other ingredients.
To make this even more of a Superfood Soup, add 2 cups coarsely chopped kale the last 5 minutes of cooking, or until wilted.
