Sounds like a good way to combine TMX & slow cooker. Chop saute onion & garlic, then chop up veg into small pieces to put in TMX then after cooking use it to puree. Good thinking

the TMX would be perfect for this soup if you only wanted a small quantity :)
because i cook huge quantities at one time i have to go with stove top!

This sounds amazing. I am tucking this away for a Halloween shindig, and I will be sure to link back here if I blog about it, or pass the recipe. Thanks!
