Pre-heat your slow cooker on low. Prepare all the vegetables and combine in the slow cooker with the garlic, spices and broth. Add enough water to cover the vegetables, about 1 to 2 cups. Mix well, cover and cook until vegetables are tender, 7 to 8 hours.
Once ready, puree the soup using an immersion or countertop blender until smooth. Serve hot garnished with the croutons and chives.
