give your slow-cooker some lovin

We're in the middle of a deep-freeze here, and the frigid temperatures are leaving me craving hot, hearty meals. I tried out a new soup in my slow-cooker yesterday, and was quite satisfied with the results. My son and partner loved it, too, and we've got enough left over (after several helpings each) to feed us two more dinners, or several lunches.

Slow-Cooker Tomato & Barley Soup

5 diced tomatoes
30 oz vegetable broth
1 cup barley
Tofurkey "sausages", diced
3 cups chopped spinach

Throw the first four ingredients in the pot. Cook on medium for six hours. Add the chopped spinach one hour before serving.

* I diverged from the recipe slightly and added garlic, onion, cumin, corriander, sea salt and pepper, all to taste.
