Slow Cooker Soups for Winter

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Welcome in the new year with these winter slow cooker soup recipes. As a busy mother, wife and writer, I have to plan ahead if I’m going to achieve my health goals. When I utilize my slow cooker, I’m able to quickly and easily prepare family meals. These hearty soup recipes will warm you on a cold night and support you nutritionally too. Begin 2013 on a strong note with these soup recipes.

Northern Bean and Spinach Soup

This hearty soup is perfect for when there is a chill in the air, and you want dinner waiting for you as you walk in the door.

Hello, I love soups and will definately try the chicken and rice and minestrone, but my kids aged 15, 14 and 11 will probably not go for it, any solutions to this age old problem. Report
Did you hear that!?! My belly is rumbling!!! I have tried a couple of these and this list is great, now I have a few more to try! Report
I have got to try these. Sound so tasty. Report
PLEASE show the serving SIZE with recipes! For instance, if a recipe says has 8 servings, please say 8 1-cup servings so we know how much to serve. Otherwise, we have to empty the entire crock pot into serving dishes to know how much to serve each person! Report

Cooking winter squash: it is pretty hard to cut up for cooking. I usually halve the butternut or hubbard, whatever, scoop out the seeds, then bake it cut-side down until I can poke a fork through the squash through the skin. (I line my baking dish or spray it so the squash doesn't stick.) When it is done and cooled, I spoon out the squash (leaving the skin to discard). What I don't need that day, I freeze in portions for another day. Hope that helps, 8NT SKYRD Report
This gave me some great dinner ideas Report
I plan on making the Chicken Tortilla soup next weekend. I'm anxious to try it! Report
