"This recipe was originally a stove-top recipe from the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine website but I find it much easier to put everything in the slow-cooker in the morning and enjoy for dinner. This recipe makes a thick and creamy soup, so I recommend starting with 4 cups water or stock, then add the other cup later if you like more broth. Serve with crusty rolls and salad, and you have a perfect dinner!"

Very good chowder/thick soup. For a vegetarian dish this was very filled. Changes I made: for the broth we used mushroom broth which I bought at Whole Foods and for the seasoned salt I used Old Bay, but otherwise made as directed for a very good dinner which we served with corn muffins. Thanks for sharing!
