HOLLYSNOWWOMAN: Great idea! Thanks.
Cooking beans in the crockpot -- which is the cheapest and best way to do them -- and then freezing them with veggies for soup later. That is the secret to good soup for one. (And it includes beans, which we're always suppoed to eat.)

today's experimental soup!
carmelized onions, vegetable broth, chickpeas, mushrooms, leftover vegetables, garlic, herbs, chicken broth pwdr
I use my crock pot to cook beans and then I take them and put in the freezer. I like to throw whatever veggies I have on hand, take some beans out of the freezer and make soups. Cooking for one I have a hard time eating different veggies so soup is a good thing.
Slow but will get there!
The latest experiment:
one package boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in one to two inch pieces
1 medium onion, chopped,
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 can rotel chiles and tomatoes
1 can niblets corn
I can low sodium black beans
1 can low sodium pinto beans (or any other beans)
1/2 cup chopped or sliced black olives
1-2 teaspoons chile powder (to taste)
Brown chicken with onions; throw everything in the crock pot... serve with tortillas, or corn bread, or polenta, or a smile! It keeps well, gets better each day, freezes well..... and is wide open for innovation and transformation!

I fixed the Slo-Cooker Pork Chop. It was a hit!
However, I wonder if I could use another mix than the Ranch? Although I loved it, I have IBS. Need I say more???
"All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord, and are called according to His purpose."
1/2 pound ground turkey
1/2 pound ground pork
1 large onion diced
1 large can diced tomatoes
2 large carrots diced
1 stalk celery diced
32 oz beef or chicken broth
1 can white beans
1 tsp each mince garlic, dried parsley, dried basil
Salt and Pepper as desired
1/2 cup of cooked soup noodles (I boil in water and add at end right before serving)
Brown meat and onions.
Add all to crock pot and cook for 4 hours on low. (Note..I have a small crock pot but this recipe can easily be doubled if you like!)

soup is very forgiving: use broth and any vegetables or bits of meat.
Just keep adding to a container of leftovers in your freezer and toss it into a cup or two of broth when it is full. Make sure you have sufficient seasoning.
Voila: instant soup!

Just use a 4 qt instead of larger pot, and reduce the size of the recipe you are preparing - or make the full recipe and freeze in portion sizes so all you have to do is heat it.
I live alone and use those recipes. ?
