I've always enjoyed using the crock pot, but lately I've been really into it! Best parts of the crock pot is the ease of making a meal & how great it all tastes at the end. Using the crock pot is a great way to meal plan too for the week! So if you have a crock pot, get ready because I'm going to share with you recipes I've been trying out!
First recipe I'll be sharing is a potato, leek & broccoli soup. It's perfect for cold weather or for lunch with a side salad! It fills you up & is great for you too!
Here's what you need:
1 Leek, finely chopped & washed
1/2 Cup of onion, chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
3-4 large potatoes, chopped
2 cups of stock
2 cups frozen broccoli, thawed
1/4 cup half & half
Once you have all your ingredients chopped & ready, throw in the leek, onion, garlic, potatoes & stock into the crock pot, put it on high for 3-4 hours.
While that's in, take your broccoli out of the freezer & let it thaw. About 10 minutes before the soup is finished, add your broccoli so it can warm up.
Once it's ready, grab your immersion blender or regular blender. You can blend it as much as you'd like, depending on how chunky you like your soup. Right before serving, add the half and half to mix in.
Serve & enjoy! Talk about easy!
