- 1 large yellow onion, diced
- 4 celery stalks, finely diced
- 4 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 16 oz organic frozen corn
- 2 cups organic vegetable or chicken broth
- 1 12 oz can of coconut milk

- a small bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
Place all ingredients, except the garnishes, into the slow cooker.
Cook on high 5 hours or low 7-8 hours until vegetables are softened.
Using a potato masher roughly mash the soup – this will make it really creamy leaving chunky bits.
Taste and adjust seasoning with sea salt and pepper to taste.
