Recipe Notes

  1. Caramelizing Onion and Garlic is an optional step. You can directly dump everything into the slow cooker. I prefer to do it because It maximizes the flavor.
  2. I roasted 4-5 medium tomatoes on the stove top. Chopped with a knife and reserved the juices. You can also substitute with equivalent canned tomatoes.
  3. If you prefer the soup more water like, then increase the stock quantity.
