Some of the best Crock-Pot meals are soups and stews because the slow cooker is designed to cook at a low setting for a longer period of time. Pour water or broth on it to cover the soup ingredients, and if in case you need to add more during cooking wait until it boils first before adding, so it does not lower the stew’s or soup’s cooking temperature.
When one has a slow cooker, he or she can come up with amazing stews and soups because all ingredients can be added right away and be left to simmer the entire day. This way, the flavors will be able to develop more and the ingredients become tender. The heat of the cooker prevents the sticking of the food to the sides, so people do not have to worry about stirring the soup or stew from time to time. That what makes crockpot vegetable soup one of my best recipes.
