Bowl of Love: Crockpot Vegetable Soup

Recipe Crockpot Vegetable Soup

For Spring's arrival, I decided to make a healthy “bowl of love” for my family, filled with veggie goodness and my favorite kitchen gadget - the crockpot. And my crockpot is extra special since it’s wifi-enabled (so I can control it from an app at work)! Yes, it’s amazing. And so it this soup. Even my toddler gobbled it up!

Crockpot Vegetable Soup Ingredients

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup carrots chopped
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 2 cups potatoes cubed
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1-2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 can diced tomatoes drained
  • 1 can white beans drained
  • 1.5 cartons beef broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp thyme

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put anything in the pot you've got! Don't stress if you don't have every ingredient. This is a mom survival tip for you. :)

  2. Chop up the fresh vegetables (carrots, onion, potatoes). I prepped mine the night before so I could just throw it all in the crockpot on our way out the door!

  3. In the morning, put the fresh veggies in the crockpot.

  4. Add a cup of frozen corn and peas.

  5. Add a can of drained diced tomatoes and white beans.

  6. Add a tablespoon or two of minced garlic.

  7. Add salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, and bay leaves.

  8. Pour in about a carton and a half of beef broth (or any broth you want). Enough to cover all the veggies.

  9. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours.

  10. Make sure the potatoes are soft. Remove bay leaves and serve!
