This is a quick and easy slow cooker soup that’s soy and oil free. I threw in some turnips I had in the fridge, but you can use potatoes, carrots, or even sweet potatoes if that’s what you have. The spices add layers of flavor that turn this simple soup into something you can even serve at your next dinner party.

Add everything but the salt and pepper to your slow cooker and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours (or high for 3 to 4 hours).
