This recipe is quick, easy and delicious. It was so nice to arrive home in the evening to a warm meal after work, school and after-school activities. We really enjoyed all of the veggies. I didn't have a bag of frozen mixed vegetables but did use up the odds and ends of frozen veggies that were in my freezer...corn, peas, italian green beans and limas. The salt was a bit much for our tastes so I will use low sodium products next go around. Also I'll cut back on the black pepper as the children found it to be a bit too peppery for them. Cooking time in my crockpot was 9 hours (I have an older one). Thanks for a yummy soup Helping Hands.
Wow - this is just a wonderful soup! It's a vegetable soup with a little chicken added and it's so hearty and flavorful. It seemed to call for too much black pepper but I decided to go ahead and add the full amount and I'm so glad I did - it made this soup terrific. I also really loved the addition of the spinach. I can't say enough about this great soup - it will be a staple at my house - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for My 3 Chefs November 2008
