Make the soup: In a saucepan, bring the broth and milk to a simmer and keep at a simmer. I love this one from Oxo and use it all the time making ricotta, straining pasta, and of course, making this soup.
Most soup recipes start out with the basic mirepoix — carrots, celery and onion — and layer on flavor from there. Slow cooker recipes can be iffy sometimes, but this one turned out exactly as expected (actually, much better than expected) and it was delicious!
Simple vegetable soup can be transformed – chilli, ginger and garlic will give an Asian flavour or add shredded leftover chicken or ham. I used the food processor to slice the onions and I made a batch and a half of soup. It’s a wonder this slow-cooker chicken parm soup isn’t a staple at red-sauce joints nationwide: It basically tastes like, yes, chicken parm, in soup form.
Of course this soup isn’t the magic weight loss secret but if you’re trying to cut calories this is perfect to have in your fridge ready to enjoy when you need a snack or a quick meal! You can use the bones to create a flavorful broth, while the meat can add a savory bite to it. In fact, homemade bone broth is one of my favorite superfoods because of its incredibly healing benefits.
Once you’ve ladled the soup into bowls, crumble over a little of your favourite blue cheese, if you like. I was so timid that I didn’t even think of split pea soup or refried beans yet – much less cheese. I have a lot of recipes posted in the blog for salads I basically used those but eliminated the crunchy items (nuts, fruits).
