Family Food Recipe Stress Relief

My “Go To” Soup

Need Dinner in a Hurry? I always do. I typically hate coming home to make dinner after work. But, the family has to eat, right?! So, when I know it’s going to be cold (like this whole week) I take a few minutes (seriously 5 minutes is longer than it takes) and I throw this yummy soup in the crock pot.   The recipe itself was something I found a long time ago and I’ve altered it a little.  I like the simplicity, and it takes good….my whole family will eat it (that’s not common).    Easy Peasy! Here ya go with the Slow Cooker Vegetable Juice Soup:


  • 1 bottle of vegetable juice
  • 3/4 large bag of frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1/2  bag of frozen hash brown potatoes
  • Slow Cooker Liner (Optional)

(I have easily doubled this.  Also, if you like more liquid and less vegetables, add a second bottle of juice. The beauty of this recipe is it is simple and so customizable. I have even been known to add a pound of browned ground beef. )


  1. Put a Liner (optional) into your slow cooker
  2. Add all ingredients!
  3. Cook on Low for 8-10 hours.
  4. Enjoy!


I really do love this recipe.  So very simple.  So very yummy.  Great on a cold day with some buttered bread.

Using the Liner makes the cleanup SUPER EASY AND FAST!  You really can’t beat it.

So that’s it…within 5 minutes of prep you have a a great dinner for when you are ready to eat after a long day.
