"Whole family loved it! I found a mixed vegetable blend specifically for soups and it was amazing in this recipe! I was extremely impressed by the tomato juice taking in the flavors while in the crock pot. You would never have guessed that was all that was in it! I did add a little salt and more juice than the recipe required. Overall, I will be making this again! Maybe next time I will try adding rice!"

"Frozen MIXED veggies just don't cut it in my book...fresh sliced carrots, fresh or frozen green beans, frozen corn or peas(separate) taste much better. Sauteed onions, celery and mushrooms would add so much more to this soup."

"Really disappointed here. Just not my thing, I guess. Very little taste. Won't make it again."

"I would think that adding the veggies and potatoes in the frozen state would lower the temp of the ingredients in the crock pot and it would take longer to bring the whole pot up to proper cooking temperature. I haven't made this as yet but plan to use it when we have a busy day, my rating reflects my opinion on the ease of the recipe."

"Actually, I don't know why you would even need a slow cooker for this recipe. It could be cooked on stove top in minutes."

"easy and delicious! I make a pot of this at least once a month--more often than that in the winter. Makes plenty so there is enough to share, freeze or enjoy for several meals."

"I did not thaw the potatoes or vegetables - worked out perfectly! Not sure why it says to thaw... Once I even waited until half way or so thru cooking and added canned diced potatoes - equally good!"

"I want to try this - but I have a question - if I am going to cook it all day in a slow cooker, do the potatoes and veggies have to be thawed first?"
