Potato soup for lunch

I love my slow cooker, also known as a crock pot, it is easily my favourite purchase in the condo. This morning I noticed a few sad looking potatoes in the fridge and decided to make soup out of them. It took about four hours, but was well worth it.

5 pounds potatoes, peeled, cut into large chunks
1 large yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 cups vegetable stock

Put everything into the crock pot, cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4. The potatoes should be fork-tender. After, transfer to blender and puree the soup. You can also add cheese.

To accompany the soup I also made a toasted avocado and spinach sandwich with chic peas and cherry tomatoes glazed in virgin olive oil. It was delicious.
