I used my 4-Quart slow cooker.

Stir well to mix.
Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 9 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours, or until the vegetables are tender and can easily be pierced with a fork.
Stir in the parsley during the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking.

Then just pop the insert into your slow cooker, turn it on and continue cooking as directed.Serving size: 1-⅓ cups6*SmartPoints (Green plan)6*SmartPoints (Blue plan)4*SmartPoints (Purple plan)6*PointsPlus (Old plan)
