I mentioned on Sunday that I neglected to menu plan this week. It has worked out well so far, as my husband had a short trip away and L and I are happy to eat eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies and soups for meals.
We are back to normal tonight, and it’s always nice to have a big pot of something to ensure leftovers for lunches the next few days. I made a crock pot of black beans and decided to round up some other crock pot recipes for easy referencing.
Nutrition tip: One of the benefits of soups is that all of the nutrients leached from the food during the cooking process are contained in the broth, unlike boiling or simmering vegetables where the cooking water is drained off.
Here are a few of my favorites, as well as several I’d like to try:
Lindsay’s Vegetarian Chili
Michelle’s Vegan Chili
Melanie’s Crock pot Chicken Chili
Jamie’s Chickpea Curry
Heather’s Faux Pho Udon Noodle Soup
Here are three more that I need to try soon:
Laura’s Chopped Veggie Quinoa Soup
Lindsay’s Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
Tiffany’s Indian Spiced Lentil Soup
Do you have a favorite crock pot soup recipe?
