That is a good summer soup. I love the crock pot in the summer, it keeps the kitchen cool and makes for an easy dinner.

I love your soup recipes and recipes in general, Kath, because of your onion hatred! :) I have an onion intolerance, so it’s really helpful to know that your recipes are unlikely to include them!

Although it’s summer, I do love my soup! I have been meaning to make soup for a while now and this really does look amazing.

I made this last night and while the spices were awesome the soup was sub par. It probably needed a good 2 more hours than it was given , the squash still had a whole lot of crunch to it. Also I was confused on the bean front, you say 2 cups of cooked beans or 2 cans, not drained? 2 cans of beans equals almost 4 cups of beans PLUS all the extra sodium water from the cans added in would make the soup very thin and salty. I served the soup with this bread I made – http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2010/01/10/blizzard-conditions-sno-problem-stay-home-and-bake/ – SO good! You should try it! It was a little trouble obtaining all the grains, but most of them you probably already have on hand!

This soup was delicious. I just started doing weight watchers and this soup is a delicious dinner with minimal points! It takes a lot longer than two hours to get the zucchini and squash tender I would leave this recipe in the crock pot for 4-5 hours. Thanks KATH for another great recipe
