Leave potato peels intact for extra vitamin and mineral content, or peel if you prefer. Any quality pesto will do; traditional basil-garlic-pine nut pesto is fine, or try this with sun-dried tomato pesto for a unique flavor. Add chopped kale or chard to the cooker just before serving to boost this meal’s nutritional value.

  1. Combine all ingredients except pesto in slow cooker. Cook on high for 3–4 hours or low for 5–6 hours. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Ladle soup into bowls. Swirl approximately 1 tablespoon pesto into each bowl. Serve immediately.
