  1. Add all ingredients to your slow cooker/crock pot.
  2. Turn on high for approximately 4-6 hours.
  3. Remove Kombu and bay leaves.
  4. Use an immersion blender to blend the soup, but leave a little texture to it.
  5. Turn to low and leave the soup to cook until you are ready to eat.

I highly recommend the salt-free spice mix mentioned in the recipe.
