Hello all,

Let me quickly share the recipe for our family’s favorite soup of the season: No-Oil Mixed Vegetable Soup. I cooked it in a slow cooker. I recently got one and it is one of the best investment I made for $15. During winters, my husband loves soup so I serve it with all the vegetables and lentils. On some days I change between barley, brown and white rice. It is a one pot wonder meal and it cooks all by itself. I don’t have to be around to switch it off or prevent any burning. On a week night right before I hit the bed, I dump all the vegetables, spices and lentils in the slow cooker and leave it at low powder and let it cook overnight. I wake up to a bowl of fresh, homemade soup. How wonderful is that!
