Can you make soup in a slow cooker? I'm guessing you can but I'm not sure how as you'd have to adjust the amount of liquid. confused

Any ideas or tried and tested recipes? smile

Shamelessly jumping onto this thread as I want to know the answer too!

What have you cooked so far?

I've done pulled pork and a chilli/ stew thing. Both were delicious! smile

Yes, you can, use less liquid as it doesn't reduce, I use about half what I'd normally use.
Very nice is a chunky crab gumbo, tin of toms, onions, garlic, about 300ml stock, pureed cannelini beans (these thicken the soup) s & p and a tsp hot chilli powder. Cook for about 5 hours then add a tin of dressed crab, some shredded greens or cabbage, leave for another half hour, and serve with crusty bread, and maybe white crab mixed in last minute.

I really dont like stews or soups made in a slow cooker, they just turn out vile I think sad I use mine for making cheap cuts of meat tender and tasty. I stick in ribs, or pork shoulder, or brisket etc and they come out fantastic.
