Preface: I am not a cook. These recipes arose from my need to make super-quick, easy, safe meals based on Heather's suggestions. No measurements are included b/c they are easily adjusted based on how much you want to make. Read at your own risk.
Sweet Potato Soup Pour a couple bags of frozen organic sweet potatoes in the crock pot. Pour in a couple boxes of fat free veggie broth. Shake in some spices (salt, black pepper, cayenne - take your pick). Sometimes, I add carrots. Don't forget to turn the pot on. Do your day. Mash with a potato masher when you get home. Dump in some jasmine rice. Enjoy!
ShroomTato Soup Peel and chop some organic russets and toss them in the crockpot. Pour in a couple boxes of Fat Free mushroom broth. Add some TVP. Add some spices (pepper, garlic salt, parsley, whatever you like). Put some mushrooms in, if you have them. Turn on the pot. Voila! Instant dinner when you get home. Serve with bread, soy sour cream, BacO's and soy parmesan or shredded cheddar.
Notes: There's obviously endless variation for these soups. Sometimes, I use real sweet potatoes and actually peel and chop. Sometimes, I throw in Minute Rice or chile powder or onions and garlic. When life's really hectic, I'll throw all the ingrediants in a big pot on the stove, boil it up and call it quick-soup. Always makes a great lunch on these cold winter days, too.
