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!
If you're cooking the soup for a long period of time in the crockpot (8+ hours) , I wouldnt saute them first.
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.
Yes for crockpot cooking, you should.
