Kids love soup, but even the most passionate soup fans can get tired of another bowl of chicken and noodle. Magic Six Soup Recipe is a rich and delicious alternative.
The idea behind this recipe came from a pantry clean out day. I noticed these six ingredients in my pantry were common ingredients in some of my favorite soup recipes. While I didn't have the rest of the ingredients that I normally use, I tried this recipe with these six items that I did have on hand.
Not only did it turn out delicious, but it turned out to be a very freezer friendly soup. By freezer friendly, I mean that it froze, thawed out, and re-heated with no change to the texture or flavor of the soup.
This recipe is prepared in the slow cooker, though it'll cook just find in a large pot on your stove.
- 2 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes
- 1 14 ounce can of tomatoes sauce
- 3 14 ounce cans of sweet corn
- 2 14 ounce cans of french style green beans
- 1 /2 cup of Worcester sauce
- 6 Yukon gold potatoes, quartered
- Spray your slow cooker with a non stick cooking spray.
- Wash and quarter the potatoes.
- Place all of the ingredients in the slow cooker except the Worcester sauce.
- Cook on low for five to seven hours.
- Add the Worcester sauce the last thirty minutes of cooking.
- Enjoy now, or let cool completely, and freezer for a later use.
- If you are freezing this recipe, make sure to have an air tight container or freezer safe plastic bag.
- While you should normally never take the cover off of your slow cooker while it's cooking, this recipe is an exception. I usually remove the cover twice to stir the ingredients together as they are simmering away.
- If this is your first time cooking soup in your slow cooker, give it a taste after five hours. You'll want the potatoes to be soft and tender. Some slow cookers may accomplish this in five hours, but others may need the full seven hours. It will depend on the age and make of your slow cooker. Dicing the potatoes instead of quartering them will decrease their cooking time.
- As mentioned above, this is an excellent freezer recipe. It's also a fantastic gift idea. Simply place in a freezer safe container, along with freezing and re-heating instructions. It's best to bring this straight from the pot, so that the recipient can eat it now or decide to freezer it for later.
