My Easy Crock Pot Minestrone Soup recipe is simple and delicious.  The vegetarian/ vegan base is packed with flavor and the soup is hearty enough for a full meal!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Yesterday was busy but productive for me.  It was so pretty here that I went to the park and ran outside for a long time.  It felt so good after doing so many treadmill runs lately.  Later today I’m going to try a new yoga class!  I’ve never gone to a studio consistently to practice (I use DVDs,) so I am looking forward to giving it a shot.  It feels good to be getting back into workout routine and cooking at home.  As much as I love to eat out I know I am eating better food when I prepare it myself.

This easy Crock Pot Minestrone Soup is one of the first dishes I made after we got back from Antigua and I’ve been thinking about it ever sense.

The soup is so flavorful and hearty.  It is really the perfect meal year-round, but especially when the weather is so cold.  I even made mine with organic whole wheat pasta so I could eat the healthiest kind of carbs.

I start the soup with some simple chopped vegetables.

Then I add rich high quality vegetable broth, canned tomatoes and hearty beans to the mix.

I let the Crock Pot Minestrone soup simmer all day.  When I come home add the pasta for the last few minutes of cooking.  It keeps the pasta from getting too soft.

I serve this super easy Crock Pot Minestrone soup with a side salad or a few pieces of toasted garlic bread.

It is a winner every time!

    Looks tasty! Instead of whole wheat pasta I might try hominy or even quinoa. Thanks for sharing.

    Your minestrone looks delicious, Julie! I love making french onion soup in my crockpot, I caramelize the onions first throughout the afternoon, the smell is just amazing 🙂

      It is! I should have written in the post that we ate it three times in a week. Normally the hubs protests leftovers more than once. But I asked him whether he wanted me to freeze the last bunch or eat it and he wanted to eat it. Never happens! 🙂

    I like that this looks like a thicker minestrone compared to most. I hate nothing more than seeing a minestrone that is watery! There’s always room for more pasta and veggies.

      Me too! Soup has to be hearty to be a meal in my book.

    I love love love minestrone. There is an incredible Italian restaurant near my apartment that does a fab made from scratch minestrone and I don’t get it all the time, but I love the comfort of it when I do!
