This is a Minestrone Con Bruschetta Soup that I got off Pip’s blog, Meet Me at Mikes.

Here is my version:

4 tbsp olive oil
1 finely diced onion
1 finely diced carrot
1 finely diced celery stick

2 finely diced zuccini

4 small potatoes, diced finely

20 green beans sliced finely

tin of chopped organic tomatoes
2 litres of quality chicken stock
salt & pepper
saute the onion, carrot and celery in olive oil in a frying pan

transfer sauted vegetables into the slow cooker

add the other vegetables and stock into the slow cooker

add paprika and pepper

leave in the slow cooker on low for 4 – 6 hours

season with salt

Serve with buttered bread.
