Slow Cooker Vegan Minestrone


"While sausage is not a normally a part of traditional minestrone, I find that it adds a bit of substance to the soup and makes for a more complete meal, especially if serving it to a meat & potatoes kind of guy like mine who thinks of soup as an appetizer, not the main course!"
