Crock pots make great soups! Here's four recipes for potato soups.


POTATO SOUP

7 cups cubed peeled potatoes -- (7 to 7 1/2)
4 cups chicken broth ( reduced-sodium )
1 cup water
2 cups chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons dried dill weed
1 can evaporated milk -- (12 oz)

In a large crockpot, combine first ten ingredients.

Cover and cook on high for 7 hours or until the
vegetables are tender.

Add milk. Stir to blend and heat.

Use a hand mixer to blend some of the "chunks" to thicken
soup. Fix to preference: to thicken further use potato
flakes & to thin soup,add regular milk.

2 Tbs. Safflower Oil
2 Cloves Garlic
1 chopped onion
2 large carrots
2 stalks celery
1 1/2 cups dry lentils
7 1/2 coups water
1 vegetable bouillon cube
1/2 cup ketchup
pinch of tyhme
dash of paprika

Heat the oil in a heavy soup pot. Mince garlic, slice onion & saute them in the oil, sitrr freq. until softened. Coarsely chop the carrots and celery & add to the oil, stirring well to coat them. Add lentils & stir. Add water. Bring the sup to a boil & when boiling add bouillion, thyme & paprika. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer the soup covered for 45 min. to an hour. lentils should be very soft. Add ketsup and serve.
