I’m all about slow cookers lately. They are saving my life these days! I have been leaving the house with dinner already cooking by 9 o’clock. It’s wonderful to come home in the late afternoon with little to do for dinner. I open up the top add a few more sides to our plates and Voila! Dinner is served.
Most of the time everyone enjoys what is on their plate or in their bowl. This one needed a little more doctoring, but not much. I forgot about the bacon garnish, but the rice adds a great touch. This soup is as creamy as a nice risotto, but not too rich. Serve it with some nice artisan bread and it’s the perfect bowl of comfort during a cold winter’s night. Add this one to the list of tasty Better Homes and Gardens recipes.
