6-Slow Cooker Rosemary Potato Soup

Best Easy Healthy Lunch Ideas | Breakfast may be one of the most important meals of the day, so lunch is often the most neglected. Between choosing the easiest option of cold leftovers and finding time while working from home, it's no wonder we need this cup of coffee so badly. No matter what you may think, eating a healthy and delicious lunch every day doesn't mean you have to devote the entire Sunday to preparing a meal, and we're here to prove it

Ingredients

  • 4 russet potatoes medium, cooked, peeled and cut into chunks.

  • 4 cups chicken broth low-sodium

  • 4 vegetable bouillon cubes low-sodium

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 2 tablespoons onion powder

  • 1 tablespoon rosemary fresh, chopped plus extra to taste: we used an extra 2 tablespoons

  • salt to taste

Directions

  • Place everything in your slow cooker, EXCEPT THE ADDITIONAL ROSEMARY AND SALT, and cook on low for 2-4 hours. The potatoes are already cooked, so the real purpose of cooking this is to get the bouillon cubes dissolved and to get all the flavors to meld, which a slow cooker does wonderfully. You don’t want to cook this too long, as the flavor of the potatoes will change.
  • When you’re done cooking, use a hand blender to blend everything right in the slow cooker until smooth.
  • You can also transfer small amounts at a time to a regular blender. But a hand blender is MUCH easier and far less messy.
  • Blend in the extra rosemary and some salt to taste.
  • Allow to cool and enjoy.
  • Excellent served with a piece of whole-grain bread and a side of chicken breast!
