You have an option to cook this soup on the stove for a fairly quick and easy dinner. Or you can just throw everything in the slow cooker and let it cook all day while you are out at work.

Make it Easy Tip: If you aren’t feeling well just leave the onions out so you don’t have to stand in front of the stove at all – just throw the rest in the slow cooker and go back to bed. You can even cook it on high for 4 hours if you make it when you wander to the fridge to get some water in the afternoon before you go back to bed!

Your recipe is really nice. I\'m gonna try baking too. Similar to you, I\'m also eating gluten-free foods. I suggest you to visit http://glutenfreefamily.net as I found out that they provide useful information about gluten free foods and diet.
