Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Looking for a meatless option to feed your family? This one will slow-cook its way into your hearts!

It's the time of year, when many of you are looking for meatless options for dinner.  We try to stick with the "no meat" Fridays during the Lenten season and I know many of you out there are vegetarians.  Even if you're not celebrating Lent, or a vegetarian, sometimes we just don't feel like eating meat.

When I was pregnant with my son, I didn't have much of an appetite the first four months or so.  The LAST thing I wanted was meat.  I made A LOT of meatless soups during this time, LOL!  Even though I'm not pregnant now, my husband and I often grow tired of eating meat.  We often venture over to meatless options.

Because we're not vegetarian at my house, I often make my soups with beef and chicken broths or bouillon cubes.  Please, by all means, if you're vegetarian, use vegetable broth or bouillon cubes.  It will still turn out delicious!

As always, please feel free to tailor this soup to your family's likes/dislikes!  Add more or less veggies, depending on what you like.  I think everyone will clean their bowls with this delicious, Creamy Potato Soup!

Mine didn't come out looking like this, it came out looking rather curdly and gross :(

Sorry to hear that Kristina! That kind of thing happens to me sometimes too :( It's discouraging, but sometimes the Crock has a mind of its own!

I looked up other recipes similar to this and they called for dairy products to be added at the end. Trying it today :)

Shannon, as long as they are warmed up or room temp first, otherwise, they will still curdle.
