Grandma's Chunky Veg soup - slow cooker

I know its spring, and we should be eating salads and jacket potatoes, but I couldn't resist sharing this Chunky vegetable soup recipe. Although soup is traditionally a winter food, this soup is so fresh and tasty it really could be eaten any time of year! Its super full of goodness too!
Enjoy :)

You will need
50g butter
2 Carrots, chopped
1 Onion, chopped
2 Celery sticks, chopped
1 Parsnip, chopped
1 Potato, chopped
1 Leek, peeled and chopped
2 tbsp chopped Parsley
200ml hot vegetable or chicken stock
Salt and Pepper to season

Heat the butter in a sauce pan and fry off the onions
Add 200mls of stock to your slow cooker
Add all your chopped veg into the slow cooker
Once onions are golden and soft also add them to the slow cooker
Heat for 4-6 hours
When cooked, use a potato masher to mash a little of the soup, leaving a little of the rough texture
Eat warm

Feedback and suggestions welcome!
