Recipe may contain gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, milk and soy.

The best thing about making soup in a slow cooker is that you can quickly throw everything together in the morning and come home to a warm, cooked dinner. No need to stand next to the pot, stirring and adjusting heat. This hearty veg soup also contains barley which is a rich source of fiber and vitamins.
