Add everything apart from the spinach to the Slow cooker

Cook on high for 4-5 hrs or low for 6-8hrs
I mashed it down slightly but it can be liquidised if preferred

Tip- add a swirl of cream before serving or some milk if your watching the calories
Tip- swap the porridge oats for barley( I didn't have any but the oats add creamyness and thickens the soup)
Tip-add any veg you have- I added stir fry veg as I had some left in the bottom of the fridge. Swede is also great to add as is parsnips etc
