We liked this a lot ! I followed the recipe exactly except for the veggie broth - I used a 32 oz box of chicken broth and two cups of water. All else as posted including the Yukon Gold Potato. I had no problem with the veggies cooking tender at 8 hours on low. I added the liquid smoke and a teaspoon of dried parsley at the end of cooking. I served this soup with a side of fresh corn bread ( Jalapeno Cornbread Low Fat to No Fat ) and all was yum-oh and DH a happy eater. Thanks so much for the share.

This is really delicious. I had no problem with it getting cooked. The broth I used was hot when I put it in the crockpot, so maybe that helped. I found no need to cook the onion, carrot and garlic before adding them to the pot. Next time I might double the carrots and beans. Anyway, I will definitely make this again.

A really enjoyable soup. I did use the liquid smoke and cooked on the stove top instead of the microwave. I also used chicken broth and added a very small amount of browned, ground turkey. Instead of adding salt and pepper, I just sprinkled with lemon pepper seasoning in the bowl right before serving.
