Potatoes, bacon, and cabbage team up to make a filling main dish soup for the slow cooker. Just add the vegetables and broth to the crock pot and set it for about 6 to 8 hours. All you have to do when you get home is add some sour cream and cooked bacon.
Enjoy this delicious soup with crusty bread or biscuits. The leftovers make a fabulous lunch the next day, so don't worry if you make too much.
- 4 cups chicken stock (unsalted or low sodium)
- 3 potatoes (peeled and diced)
- 1 1/2 cups cabbage (chopped)
- 1 leek (diced, with white and only the very light green parts)

- 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Combine chicken broth, potatoes, cabbage, leek, onion, carrots, and parsley in large bowl; pour mixture into slow cooker.
Stir in salt, pepper, caraway seeds, and bay leaf.
Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for about 3 to 4 hours (or until the vegetables are tender). Remove and discard bay leaf.
