Hearty Crockpot Minestrone Soup RecipeHere's some hearty crockpot minestrone soup to keep you warm during the cold.
Minestrone soup is a classic. It’s simple, loaded with vegetables, and is just as filling as a hearty stew. There are many variations of minestrone soup, I prefer adding a leafy vegetable to mine. You can choose to substitute canned ingredients for fresh. I don’t mind using canned, it’s much quicker. :)
And the taste is just divine. Thick, rich, full-bodied with tomatoes, potatoes, and beans!
- 1 can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
- 1 small bunch of rainbow carrots, sliced
- 4 small gold potatoes, chopped
- 1 sweet onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
- 2 teaspoons coarse salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 2 bay leaves
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 1 ½ cups water
- 3 ½ cups tomato juice
- 2 cans white kidney beans
- 1 large zucchini, chopped
- 1 cup Ditalini Pasta
- 1 can green beans
- 1 cup chopped baby spinach
Add diced tomatoes, rainbow carrots, potatoes, onion, garlic, Italian seasonings, salt, pepper, bay leaves, broth, water and tomato juice to crockpot. Cook on low for 6 hours.
During the last half hour, add the white kidney beans, chopped spinach, zucchini, green beans and pasta. Stir to combine. Cook for 30 minutes on low.
Note: you can add mini meatballs or spicy sausage for those meat lovers!
Warm up with this hearty dish and enjoy!
