How to make slow cooker wild rice vegetable soup

Print this recipe
Sometimes people think that you need to include meat in a soup to make it hearty and delicious. As you'll see in the recipe below, however, that's just not true. This soup is definitely hearty and full of so many vegetables you'll start to wonder what's not in there. And because it uses wild rice, which is a little sturdier than regular rice, it holds up really well in the slow cooker. Did I mention that it's delicious, too?
I didn't even soften vegetables or caramelize anything on the stove first. I just threw everything into a slow cooker and let it bubble away while filling my house with a delicious aroma that made me want to dive right in. Every time you make this soup (because it will be more than once), you'll have to hold yourself back from giving it a taste.
