This recipe takes an amazing 15 minutes of prep time! Take a few minutes in the morning to throw the ingredients into your slow cooker before heading off to work or the school drop-off line. On the high setting the soup will be ready in 3-4 hours. Or cook on low for 6-8 hours. Once the soup is finished cooking, all that’s left is to add the cooked rice and garnish with parsley and parmesan cheese.
