One of my new years resolutions for 2015 is to rock that crockpot!  I love throwing everything in the slow cooker and coming back to a delicious-smelling house and a crockpot full of a delicious meal.

I have a few handy tips I’ve learned so far regarding slow cooker soup recipes:

  • some herbs are best added at the start of cooking (ie: rosemary and dried herbs), but fresh herbs should almost always be reserved for just prior to serving to maximize flavor.
  • most soups can benefit from a boost of acid (lemon juice, lime juice, balsamic vinegar etc) at the end of cooking.  It really brings out extra flavor!
  • chicken breast cannot handle over 5 hours (on low!) in the slow cooker.  If you need to cook for longer than that, consider boneless, skinless chicken thighs.  Bonus: brown the thighs first and they will hold together even better!
  • in my experience, light coconut milk curdles in the crockpot, whereas full-fat coconut milk can withstand cooking up to 8 hours on low.

I’ve found that it can be challenging to find healthier slow cooker soup recipes that aren’t full of heavy cream or a ton of cheese.  So I’ve scoured the internet and am reporting back with some absolutely amazing looking slow cooker soup recipes for us!
