Israeli or pearl couscous makes this the best tomato soup you've had - it soaks up the soup and is delicious, without any butter or cream! Israeli couscous is found in most grocery stores, but orzo may be substituted. Adapted from Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker.

    Wonderful, fresh tasting soup. I used Israeli couscous and that added a nice touch. Another treat was the fabulous smell wafting through the house as it cooked! Thank you for sharing!

    I love this soup! I used a sweet yellow onion, petite diced tomatoes and added some cooked chicken. Wonderful flavor and very healthy. Thanks for posting!

    Had left-over "Recipe#181516", and this looked like a good thing to do. Very tasty for 2, with some left for lunch. Israeli couscous is a nice addition to a fairly basic tomato soup recipe. Thanks for sharing/

    I found Israeli couscous and wasn't sure what to do with it. I found this recipe and although it wasn't exactly what I was looking for I thought I'd try it. Boy, am I happy I did. This made a very yummy soup and the couscous was a great addition. I doubled the recipe easily and left out the onions so skipped the bit with cooking them in a skillet...I just added a bit of minced garlic to the soup in the crockpot...this really makes a nice tasting tomato soup...even without the couscous I'll be making this again...my DH added a bit of sour cream to his...I may try to add some cream or milk at the end to make it a creamy tomato soup next time...thanks for the easy and yummy recipe...I'll be making it often...this went well with a salad of greens, cucumber, green bell pepper, tomatoes and a dressing of oil, lemon juice and anchovies. The leftover soup without the couscous went very well with my Recipe #355935 ;)

    This is a great soup! The pearl couscous is wonderful in it, and the slow cooking allows it to develop a nice richness.
