It decided to rain over the weekend, so I felt like eating something warm and hearty. This soup was the perfect creation for a cloudy day. It took only 10 minutes to put together, is chock full of healthy ingredients, and filled us up more than I imagined it would. It is also a slow cooker recipe, which meant that I didn't have to stay in the kitchen all morning tending to it.
The recipe was so simple that I didn't even take step-by-step photos. So, I hope you enjoy the finished product. Think of it on your next rainy day!
