Crock Pot Vegetable Soup

This is a super simple crock pot recipe that is sure to please everyone in your house.  Okay you may have to omit the parsley for the wee ones who refuse to eat anything green. 
Cut up potatoes, carrots and celery and place in your crock pot with enough organic vegetable broth to submerge all the items.  How many potatoes, carrots and celery stalks should you use?  This is where the recipe is super simple, you make what would feed your family.  For my family of 4, I cut up 1.5 pounds of potatoes, 3 really large carrots and 3 stalks of celery.  In the last 30 minutes of the 4 hour (on high) crock pot cooking I added one cup of frozen green beans and one cup of peas.
Here is the best part of the soup, the topping!
Place 1 cup of walnuts in a food processor until finely ground.  Then add one cup of Parmesan cheese, it's okay to use the Kraft kind for this recipe.  Mix the two while slowly pouring in olive oil until it reaches the consistency as shown in the picture.  Add a small pinch of parsley, for those who don't mind green things in their food, and enjoy!

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
