Vegan Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chick’n Chowder

Vegan Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chick’n Chowder

I’m so excited! My book, The Vegan Slow Cooker, was released early and many people who pre-ordered at Amazon will get theirs this week! This soup was pretty much an accident.

This recipe does require you to cook some rice, but I use my rice cooker, so I can still catch up on writing while the dinner finishes cooking itself.
