Riffing on what CLRWILLIAMS25 -- yes, tomato soup. And to make it 'heartier' (in the sense of heavier, but perhaps also good for your heart), make it a tomato & black bean soup, and use that immersion blender on it. Filling and rich. Creamy smooth without actual cream, so less worry about both calories or dairy separation, etc. Just my $0.02.

That crock pot tomato soup sounds delicious! I got an immersion blender for Christmas, so I'm excited to try it out on this recipe!

Try my leek and Wensleydale soup recipe. Any crumbly cheese can be substituted for the Wensleydale, just choose one with a strong flavor so you don't need much of it.I have put it on the database. Have fun.

Oh, thanks so much! I found a yummy sounding Minestrone, (like Olive Garden`s it says) and I think it has enough to it to please even our Macho Men :)
Also thanks for reminding me of the liners! I keep forgetting about them
Thanks for the ideas

Oh got it. What about a minestrone type soup with lots of veggies and beans and maybe some tortellinis? It's not cream based so it shouldn't have an issue sitting in a crock pot for awhile.

Chili! So many options. With meat, without. With beans, without. With spaghetti/pasta, witthout. I've seen recipes that use loads of veggies and things like sweet potatoes, etc.

And, for ease of clean up, they make crockpot liners that you can stick in first, then when you're done, you pull it out, and your crock pot is virtually spotless! I love these.

I thought of tomato soup, but....well I work at a Career School and have men...Carpenters, welders, auto body, auto tech, Ag....well they probably want some substance, maybe not meat, but something......

Thursday we are having a carry-in at work. The theme is soup, we all make soup and carry-in our crock pots....last year I made my yummy broccoli/cheddar soup. It was a huge hit!, but a it curdled after a few hours, even on low heat and the crock was a big pain to clean!
I want easy, quick, portable, easy to clean up after, and yummy! So.........any suggestions?
Thank You!
