This was the first soup that I've made in a slow cooker and it was lovely, so many thanks for the recipe anchel79. The instructions on the Quinoa packet asked for it to be pre-cooked so I did that, before putting it with the other ingredients. Unfortunately, I didn't have any pots or green beans so I added some carrots and more sweetcorn, peas and pepper. Very tasty and will be making again. - 03 Oct 2011
