Here is a new variation of potato soup, made in broth rather than cream. Its light - yet hearty!
Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add potatoes, leeks, carrots and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat just 5-7 minutes or until leeks are tender.
Place vegetables and all remaining ingredients except parsley in slow cooker. Cook on low heat setting 4-6 hours or High heat setting 2-4 hours, or until potatoes are tender. Just before serving; stir in parsley.
*Substitute any type of potato.

Making this for tonights dinner and can not wait to see how it turns out :)
My husband made this, but omitted the thyme (we don't care for thyme), and it was very flavorful, but there was a lot of broth. We served it with rolls and a salad.
I just made this today but varied from the recipe a little to use what I had on hand. We had a left over ham bone from Christmas dinner so I used 3 cups of BEEF broth, 3 cups of water and put the bone and whatever was left on it in the crock pot. I also used a red onion instead of the leeks since that's what I had on hand. My house smells FABULOUS and we've already sampled a little and cannot wait for dinner. We'll be making this again! Thank you!
I made this exactly as written. I used a ham steak which you can get at any supermarket. No need to wait for leftovers from "big" ham. It had a great ham taste and it was very filling. I suppose you could use a regular onion for the leek if you wanted. A great alternative to chicken soup.

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
