This stuff is better than Popeye’s spinach. Chock full of goodness. Perfect post Thanksgiving week dinner! Which is part of the reason I made it. I had a lot of half packages of veggies left over from turkey day and wanted to use them up!
3 Roma tomatoes, gutted and diced
2 heads broccoli, chopped
1/2 package of portobello mushrooms, sliced
1 small bag baby carrots, chopped
6 stalks celery, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, pressed
1 pkg bacon recipe pieces
4 cubes chicken bouillon
46-64 oz can vegetable juice
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Put everything in the crockpot and cook on low for about 10 hours or high for 6. It smells like an Italian restaurant in the house. I work a weird noon to 10pm so I prepped it at 11:30 pm, put it on low, then went to bed. I made sourdough in the morning and left the dough to rise for a few hours and turned the soup up to high. I made a couple of sourdough baguettes and flew out the door to work with a tupperware full of soup. VERY GOOD. Keeper recipe. Cleansing recipe!
Results: I garnished with green pepper and bleu cheese crumbles. It was amazing!!
