“My slow cooker is seeing a lot of use this winter. This GAPS diet slow cooker pork soup is a recent creation, using the last of the 1/2 of a woodland raised pig we purchased from farmer friends last year.
I’m hard at work developing the online GAPS ecourse. Nourishment and home cooked food is always a priority, and that means simplicity is best in the kitchen. Starting dinner in the morning and then adding one side dish to complete it, is key.
This soup is warm and nourishing, buttery and so savory. If dairy is not an issue I recommend serving with some shredded Monterey jack cheese, avocado, or a drizzle of olive oil.
