With the cold still getting into our bones here in the Midwest, I’ve been making a lot of ‘warm belly’ meals. I classify anything that is hot, hearty and filling to be perfect to zap the cold out! Since I grew tired of making meat dishes, I decided to make a Crock Pot Hearty Vegetable Soup with a kick. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.
Crock Pot Hearty Vegetable Soup
- Leek (2lg or 4sm)
- Onion (1 Med White)
- 3cups of small Red Potatoes
- 1 pkg Mini Portobello Mushrooms
- 1 bag of Mini Carrots
- Vegetable Broth (32oz)
- Pepper & Salt
- 2tbsp Better ThanÂ BouillonÂ (Vegetable)
Cook on Low for 6-8 hours or until Vegetables are cooked through but not mushy. Add Salt & Pepper to taste!
This Crock Pot Hearty Vegetable Soup is a really great soup with a good steamy kick due to the leeks. It’s also very filling for just being vegetables and a nice break from meats. However, you can couple it with Red Grape Chicken Salad sandwiches and it would make the perfect meal!
How do you add flavor to vegetable soup?
There are many things that you can add to a vegetable soup to increase its flavor. Try adding in some paprika, garlic, bay leaves, or curry powder.
How long should you cook soup in a crock pot?
When you cook soup on high in a crock pot, you lose some of it’s flavor. However, if you’re in a rush, you can cook for 4 hours on high. I recommend cooking this recipe on low for 6-8 hours.
