I promise you that you will love Slow Cooker Paleo Crab & Corn Chowder – well, “paleo-esque” as corn is not Paleo-Friendly! If you want to stick to true Paleo fashion then skip the corn. You could replace with another veggie, like zucchini. I cannot promise you that the soup will last long. – You’d better double this recipe if you like leftovers!
- Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Saute onions until they are translucent, then scrape onions and butter into crock.
- Add all other ingredients to crock, EXCEPT coconut milk and (optional) avocado.
- Cover. Crock on Low for 8 hours.
- After 8 hours, add coconut milk, stir well, and remove crock insert from base.
- If you desire a smooth, pureed soup, use a stick blender to puree soup lightly while in crock, or remove 1/2 of soup from crock and blend in blender until smooth, then add back to the crock and mix well.
Optional: Garnish with bacon, green onions or avocado.
