Soup season is in full force and I couldn’t be more excited! We eat a lot of soup here in Michigan this time of year, and for good reason: it’s nutritious, great for using up whatever you have on hand and perfect for feeding a crowd on a budget.

One of my favorite soups growing up was my mom’s famous vegetable beef soup. To save time, I’ve tweaked my mom’s recipe just a bit starting with the type of potatoes I use: Creamer potatoes by The Little Potato Company (and they come pre-washed!)  And yes, these Little potatoes are a vegetable too (many people don’t know)! The best part? No peeling required with these Little potatoes, they’re such a time saver in the kitchen.

My next time saver tip: I prepare the entire dish in the slow cooker! Ideal for feeding a crowd during the upcoming holiday season or for a busy weeknight dinner, I love that I can leave the house while the soup slowly cooks and develops flavor.

When I come home, the slow cooker has the soup warm and ready to eat. What’s better than that?

One tip I haven’t changed that I learned from my mom is to always garnish the soup with fresh parsley before serving.

Fresh herbs are a great way to brighten the flavor of dishes that have been cooking for long periods of time.

The varietal of The Little Potato Company’s Creamers you use is not important – truly any type will work! They are all delicious, convenient, and nutritious. I love the color of their Blushing Belle (red) and Terrific Trio (a mix of yellow, blue, and red) but use whatever you have on hand.

  1. This turned out great. I used homemade black beans instead of chickpeas, broccoli, zucchini, mushrooms, carrots – instead of your veggies. These are what I had on hand. I added some garlic and ginger too.
