What's in your crockpot? No fuss tom soup here

Curious what crockpot cookers are cooking up today I'm always on the lookout for ideas.

Here I've got an easy & dairy free tomato soup:

onion, chopped
garlic, crushed
cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
italian seasoning
tomatoes
leftover bread or biscuits bread
vegetable stock
Salt and pepper


Basically, I'm just using up what I find around my kitchen, cut it up/dice it & toss in the pot. My measuring methods are always "whatever" & "to taste" lol

Prolly gonna add some brown rice or quinoa at the end to make it a tad heartier.

I found the easiest, cheapest, yummiest crockpot recipe for refried beans (and it's vegan) on a blog.


What You Need:
2 cups dried pinto beans
5 cups of water
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 coves garlic. minced
2 Tbsp. tomato paste
2 bay leaves
1 Tbsp. cumin
1 tsp dried coriander
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp garlic salt
pinch of pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

To Make:
Add all ingredients in a crock pot. Make sure that you have enough water that your beans are covered by a few inches. Cook on low about 10 hours (you can just let it cook all day), or on high for about 5-6 hours. Once fully cooked and the beans are very tender, mash the mixture well with a potato masher to the consistency you like. Taste and add any additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve with oven baked tostada shells. Add whatever toppings and veggies you like.

Awesome I had some beans soaking so I am going to make this right now so it can cook while we sleep! Thanks.

Mine is full of 10lbs of chicken thighs to shred. I needed more broth for other stuff, and shredded chicken NEVER goes to waste around here.

Re: What's in your crockpot? No fuss tom soup here

Yesterday I had mine full of apples that the neighbors didn't want - small, sourish ones. We all peeled & chopped what we could use, put them in the crock & made applesauce. We don't do sugar, so just added some butter & salt to get rid of some of the sour & added cin, cloves & nutmeg YUMMY!

Re: What's in your crockpot? No fuss tom soup here

I'm attempting this! A little skeptical, but I'm hoping it'll be yummy.

Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken
(4-5 servings)

2-3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
cup white sugar
cup vinegar
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
cup of pineapple juice (use what’s in the can)
can of large pineapple chunks

Add all the ingredients to the bag. Cook 4-5 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low. Serve it over rice and enjoy. While I am cooking the rice I like to shred the chicken and put it back in the juice before I serve it.

Re: What's in your crockpot? No fuss tom soup here

Yesterday I wanted to roast my beets but there was no way I was turning on my oven. It has been over 100 degrees here for 2 weeks now. So I made them in my crockpot. I just scrubbed them clean and threw them in whole. They turned out amazing. I eat them with crumbled gorgonzola and a balsamic reduction. YUMMY!
