If I'm making an "all day cook" chicken veg soup in the crock pot do I have to saute veg such as carrots/onions first or can I just chop and add them to the soup raw? Thx!
Yes for crockpot cooking, you should.
You could just chop them and add them raw if you're rushed or you just don't want to bother. BUT, sauteed veg will add a deeper flavor to your soup, especially if you allow them to get a little brown.
If you're cooking the soup for a long period of time in the crockpot (8+ hours) , I wouldnt saute them first.
