Happy New Year!

At Christmastime, I always end up running around at the last minute, buying and wrapping gifts for the holidays.  When things get crazy, I'm often putting other priorities by the wayside... like dinner.  A few weeks ago, I came across a crockpot potato soup recipe on Pinterest that sounded great, but it used chicken broth, and that's not very vegetarian-friendly!  So I used my meatless magic and re-worked the recipe to make it veggie-friendly.  It was way yummy, and an awesome solution for a nice warm comforting dinner after a long day of wrapping gifts last week.

Slip this recipe into your meal plans for the new year, and celebrate a night off from cooking!

Here's what you need:
  • 1 bag frozen hash browns
  • 34 oz. "box" of vegetable broth
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • ½ c chopped onion
  • 1/3 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 8 oz block cream cheese
  • salt, to taste
  • garnish: chives or crumbled faux bacon strips

Put all of the ingredients (except cream cheese) in the crock pot and turn on med/low for 4-5 hours.

Break the cream cheese block into chunks, and mix into the crock pot.  Let cook for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
