January is the month for soups, slow cooking and fat free living. Who doesn’t love a good creamy potato soup? Or a cream of broccoli soup? And the slow cooker is the perfect way to make soups thats hands off. For a comprehensive list of recipes please visit Kathy over at Heathy Slow Cooking and Susan over at Fat Free Vegan.

Here’s a sampling of yummy, easy recipes to help start your January.

  1. Creamy Potato Soup will hit the spot. It’s made on the stove top, but it takes less than 30 mins to make, so you can have a healthful satisfying, effortless meal on your table before you know it, even on a night where you don’t have a lot of time to cook.

2. Easy Vegan Chicken Noodle Soup. Another soup that will be on your table from prep to cooked in 30 minutes or less. She has a vegan beef soup recipe link on her chicken noodle soup page that I’m wanting to try. Photo credit goes to Marly from Namely Marly.

3. Creamy Vegan Broccoli Soup. Depending on how long it takes you to chop broccoli this soup can be on your table within 40-45 mins. It will be worth the wait. Photo credit goes to Shannon from Yep it’s Vegan.

4. Slow Cooker Whole Wheat Spelt Potato Rolls. Oh you read that right! Plus you need a good bun for your soup. Best part is it’s cooked in the slow cooker- brilliant. Photo credit goes to Kathy from Healthy Slow Cooking.

5. With only 144 calories per muffin- these Banana Date Walnut Muffins will hit the spot. Freeze some for a quick healthful grab and go breakfast. Photo credit goes to Susan from Fat Free Vegan.
