More About This Recipe

  • Guess what makes me giddy to the max? I'll tell you. SET IT AND FORGET IT MEALS. And guess in what form? SOUP. And guess what else? I HAVE ONE FOR YOU.

    Let's put our hands together and welcome … the slow cooker Christmas Kitchen Sink Soup.


    Aaah, the slow cooker. How I love thee.

    The slow cooker graciously allows you a shameless round of fridge and pantry diving, tossing in whatever sounds good/you need to get rid of.

    And as the hours pass and you whizz by blowing kisses to the machine doing all the work so that you can watch Friends reruns, you're left with an astoundingly complex and wondrous result that will have your family begging to pamper you out of gratitude for making their faces so happy.

    For this specific Christmas Kitchen Sink Soup, I tossed in spices like cinnamon and nutmeg to give it more of a HO HO HO!!!! feel.

    It was the right decision in my life.

    Here we go go go! (sorry)

    I chopped up some leeks into teeny half moons. This is my aromatic. You can use onions if that's watcha gots.

    Grab some beans from the CUP BOARD. (That word cracks me up.) I used red beans and chickpeas this time around.

    Grab some Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes. Seriously. I love these. They add just the right HEAT to the soup.

    And one of my favorite winter lettuces, the Swiss chard. It's SUPA healthy and in the slow cooker gets SUPA silky.

    Start by sautéing the leeks with some garlic in a skillet. The smell of heaven.

    Add some good Italian sausage and cook until browned all over. Dump it all into the slow cooker.

    Then add the tomatoes, beans, some good Progresso chicken broth, and your spices. Oh heavenly day.

    Simmer it on high for a good 2 hours. Then add the swiss chard. My. Goodness.

    Simmer it on medium for 2 more hours. Every half hour or so, taste it. For the sake of your taste buds and inner happiness, taste it and see what it needs. Even if you just need to taste it because you can't help yourself.

    After 2 hours, ladle out a good helping for yourself. Inhale. Repeat as needed.

    Where's my straw?

    You guys, I can't even tell you the backflips your belly will do once a tablespoon of this soup hits it.

    M.A.K.E. I.T.
