Why You Should Make Slow Cooker Soups

Slow cooker soups are an amazing way to get dinner on the table without having to stand over the stove for hours on end. You simply dump everything into the slow cooker in the morning, and let it cook all day.

Not only does this save time, but it also brings out rich flavors you wouldn’t get with quicker cooking methods (as long as you don’t leave it TOO long and end up with that burnt…. er… what I like to call smokey flavor).

Plus, coming home to the warm smell and a ready-to-eat meal is the ultimate comfort in these long, tiring days.

The best part about slow cooker soups is their versatility. You can add any ingredients you like to create your own unique flavors. Whether you’re in the mood for a classic chicken noodle or a spicy chili, the slow cooker can handle it all. The possibilities are endless.

Slow cooker soups can be REALLY healthy too. With taking minimal time to prep some fresh ingredients, beyond that most of the recipes are basically dump and go and you have a home cooked meal by the time you get home.

Tips for Making Slow Cooker Soups

One of the best tips for slow cooker soups is to layer flavors.

  • Start with a base of strong flavors bursting with health like onions and garlic
  • Then add your proteins and vegetables
  • Stir in all your your liquids
  • Then finally add your seasonings on top

Another really important tip is to not add too much liquid, as the slow cooker will release moisture from the ingredients and could lead to a watery soup. Follow the directions of the recipe for how much liquid to add. It’s less than you would when using a stove because almost nothing boils away.

Another benefit of slow cooker soups is the ability to make large batches at once. Not only is this great for meal prepping and leftovers, but it’s also perfect for entertaining. Have a crowd coming over for a party or game day? Make a big pot of chili or soup and let everyone help themselves throughout the day. Plus, you won’t have to worry about constantly checking food on the stove while trying to entertain your guests.
