A slow cooker is a versatile kitchen appliance, extending itself to a variety of different meals and recipes. As the cooler days approach, you might be starting to think about what warming meals you can serve with minimal fuss.
Making soup in the slow cooker usually requires only a little preparation work beforehand. Once it’s cooked, you can either opt to serve it as a chunky soup, or use a hand blender to make it smooth. Often all you need to do it transfer the slow cooker inner pot straight to the table allowing people to serve themselves.
