One of the easiest and cheapest ways of cooking is using a slow cooker or Crock Pot where you can throw in ingredients and leave cooking for several hours, coming home to delicious smells and a meal ready for the family piling in. Soups are surprisingly versatile for slow cookers, many of these soups can be meals on their own, so these slow cooker soup recipes are definitely worth adding to your dinner rota.

Soup is a fantastic way to get a variety of vegetables into your family’s daily diet, and is a great way to warm kids up as they come in the door from school. It usually freezes very well, making it a great option for batch-cooking so you know you have something tasty and healthy in the freezer for another day.
