Last night I threw a bunch of veg I needed to use up into the crockpot to make minestrone soup. I used onion, garlic, celery, carrots, yellow squash, green beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, mushrooms, mushroom broth powder, water, olive oil, basil, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. Cooked on low for 12 hours then added chopped spinach at the end.
With a blob of spinach pesto. Yum!
