- Onions do much better in crockpot soup if you chop them in a food processor or chop them fine with a good sharp knife. Large pieces of onions won’t cook the same as the smaller tiny pieces.
- Always let your garlic “breathe” for 10 minutes after chopping. Let it sit before adding to the soup. And as always, add as much garlic as you like because garlic is very healthy for the body.
