But i make the same thing all the time which is based on tin chopped tomato with carrot, swede, peas, onion added.Can anyone give me variations and different recipes please - but must be suitable to leave in slow cooker all day. Many thanks. ps im fancying leek and potato but not sure about cooking it in this way?

I fully realize this one's an acquired taste, but our family really likes it, especially with the colder winter days just around the corner:

2.Stir in tofu and sesame oil. Blend cornstarch and water until smooth. Stir into slow cooker. Cover; cook on HIGH 15 minutes or until soup is thickened.
3.Serve hot; garnish with cilantro. (Et Voila! mixing metaphors, I realize)

By the way, nice to see you back BBWCHATT...
Try just frying up some choppped vegetables (onion, garlic, celery, peppers, potatoes, leek etc) in a little olive or veg oil, add a few spices that you like (mustard seed, coriander seed, cumin seed, turmeric) and a whole raft of water... Then add some rinsed red lentils and bring to the boil... allow to simmer in the slow cooker for x number of hours and hey voila - lentil soup (hopefully).. If you can't get hold of dried red lentils, try adding a can of cooked chick peas or chick pea dal... (Asda) - that makes a wonderful basis for a *moreish* stew...

I wouldn't leave anything with cream in a slow cooker, it might curdle and be a bit unpleasant.
