1 chicken liver
2 carrots, halved
2 potatoes, halved

1 small ginger, crushed slightly
1 bombay onion
2 bay leaves
Water approx 1.5L

1. Boil all the above in slow cooker for 5 hours.
2. Discard ginger and bay leaves. Blend the rest with the soup to make a smooth consistency. Don't blend all the beef or else it will be too 'heavy' for the bb. Just use a quarter or less of the beef. The rest of the soup can be enjoyed by the family or your elder kids.
