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!
