I've tossed a variety of frozen veggies into the crockpot, added some vegetarian beef broth powder, and enough water to cook as many noodles as you want to put in. (you could use brown rice instead) Wallah! Soup when you return for lunch or dinner. Get out some really great bread or crackers to go with it. You'll have enough leftovers to make a few more minute meals.
