Serves 8

  • 1 (28 oz) can low sodium crushed tomatoes, undrained
  • 4 carrots, sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups milk

Add the first nine ingredients (tomatoes through black pepper) to the bowl of a 4-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours, or until vegetables are softened.

About 30 minutes before serving the soup, prepare the roux. To prepare the roux, heat oil and butter over low heat in a sauce pan and add flour. Stir constantly with a whisk for 5-7 minutes, until roux is a smooth light brown paste. Slowly stir 1 cup of hot soup into the roux, until fully mixed in. Add another 3 cups soup to the mixture, and continue to stir until smooth. Add thickened soup back into the slow cooker, and mix in the Parmesan and milk.

Cover and cook on low for another 30 minutes. Add seasonings to taste, and enjoy.
