OK – another easy & delicious one.  Makes a boat load so get ready to freeze some.  I made this by basically throwing every bit of produce I had in my house into a crock pot & going to work.  And – as I love to do – returned many hours later to a home that smelled like somebody that loved me had been here cooking for me all day.  The ingredients are flexible so do not worry if you are missing a few or want to add others.

DIRECTIONS

Put everything into a slow cooker & cook on high for 8 hours.  Alternatively – you can wait until it is about 30 minutes from being done before you add the fresh basil, parsley & the chopped turnip greens.  This will allow them to keep their color & flavor a bit more.

Garnish & slurp it up!
