Slow Cooker Potato Soup



Submitted by:  Veronica Gantley

With so many relatives and friends that are vegetarians in my family, I am always on the lookout for ways to make my meat recipes into meatless.  The original recipe for this soup called for bacon and chicken stock.  With a few modifications it is now meatless.  I removed the bacon and replaced the chicken stock with vegetable broth.  If you have homemade broth that would be wonderful, but the low sodium vegetable broth you find in your local supermarket will work just fine.  You could add the fake bacon sprinkles if you like.  I think it tastes great without it.
