6 Ingredient Crock Pot Soup
The secret to this 6 Ingredient Crock Pot Soup recipe lies in the combining of the ingredients and allowing them to cook for such a long time in the crock pot. And that is why the crock pot is such a successful cooking implement. The crock pot cooking concept originated in the Jewish tradition of turning off the oven on Friday night before the Sabbath and letting the food cook in the cooling oven overnight. This method was used since the tradition was to not cook on the Sabbath, but to enjoy a day of rest. And that rest extended right to not turning the oven on. What a great tradition, and one that we could all likely use today, too, with our over-busy lives! In any event, this method was observed, and the crock pot was developed to emulate the process. It is an incredibly successful method of cooking just about any meat, fish, chicken, roast, cheese dish, and now, even desserts. Lava cakes can easily be made using this process. So if you do not yet own a crock pot, put it on your wish list. It will make your life so much easier. The second advantage to the crock pot, besides almost guaranteeing a fantastic result, is that you can just leave the dish out for people to serve themselves on those days when everyone is rushing in and out according to their own schedule. Finally, and perhaps a third advantage to this method of cooking, is that everything is put in to one pot. That means fewer dishes and less to clean up. There is really no downside to this method of food preparation.
One possible disadvantage to crock pot cooking is that it is a sort of everything in including the kitchen sink approach to making dinner. So if you like to have your foods separate (and I am always surprised at how many people prefer their food this way, especially finicky kids), then the all in one approach might not work for you. But for easy preparation and good results, there is not much that compares to this method.
The ingredients that you use to make any soup recipe can be almost arbitrary, and anything you like as a solid, like chicken or lasagna, can be watered down and turned into soup. Just try it. You will be amazed at the results. This soup gets its flavor from using a lot of ingredients, such as mushrooms and spinach to bolster the commercial sauce that forms the basis for the soup. Allowing the commercial sauce to simmer for many hours with the added ingredients improves the flavor and makes a great soup.
