Summer's Bounty Soup

READY IN: 8hrs 40mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

An easy slow-cooker recipe that is a great way to use your summer vegetables. My husband prefers V-8 juice but I like tomato juice, so I compromise and use half of each. You can season to your liking.

My crockpot gets used big time during the summer. I thought this was a good chunky vegetable soup that provided healthy sustenance. I used Spicy V-8. I know I will use this one all summer long because my husband has a big garden that gets closer to being ready everyday. Thanks.
