I love the method of just chopping everything up and dumping the ingredients in a crockpot to simmer all day; and viola, lunch for tomorrow! I used the 8 hour method on low. My house had a lovely aroma from the simmering soup that was comforting on a cold day. My only recommendation would be to use a mild curry, such as Madras. I used hot, as I admittedly was trying to use some up, and it came out a little hotter than I would have preferred. However, I love curry so it is ok. Thanks for posting. Made for Sun and Spice 2013.
This is one of my favorite recipes. I make it at least once a week.
