Situation: I needed a recipe for a batch of old carrots, still from my CSA share. Problem: old carrots lose sweetness and become bitter. Solution: Pineapple juice rejuvenates the carrots in this soup. Convenience: I always have pineapple juice leftover from my Slow Smokey Pineapple Turkey recipe (http://www.food.com/recipe/slow-smokey-pineapple-turkey-497845).
Searching through some of the marvelous slow cooker Potato Soup / Chowder recipes here, I had three criteria: to used up the potatoes from our CSA share, use ingredients I had on hand, and appeal to my wife and me.
Starting with stacylu's Crock-Pot Potato Chowder (http://www.food.com/recipe/crock-pot-potato-chowder-50144) as a base, then using a few of Battle in Seattle's Baked Potato Soup (http://www.food.com/recipe/baked-potato-soup-289260) seasoning sensibilities, I revised quantities and worked out a flavor profile to suit us. Here is my final product which I call Simple Slow Cooker Potato Soup.
I adapted Diana Rattray's lovely "Island Barbecued Turkey Legs" (http://southernfood.about.com/od/crockpotturkeyrecipes/r/r80418b.htm) recipe. Quickly realizing that she was making her own BBQ sauce, I revised and altered the ingredient list and, after literally over a dozen incarnations, I arrived at the following recipe.
The cumin and chipotle powder give the meal a slightly smokey flavor that plays well with the sweet (pineapple) and the heat (BBQ sauce, Salsa).
From many trial and errors and several retakes and revisions, here is the final recipe for my Slow Cook Lentil-Sweet Potato Soup. It is hardy, thick, and savory, with a reddish, slightly sweet broth.
Note: this recipe is adapted from the following recipe at About.com:
I took charge of dealing with the celeriac we get from our CSA. A web search led me to Alanna Risse's fine blog with the following posted recipe:
After tweaking this slow cooker recipe, we've arrived at a more pea-based, somewhat sweeter, thicker revision of the above Celeriac & Split Pea Soup recipe, which is simple, flavorful, and stands on its own. It is one we make a couple of times a year.
