Get ready for slow cooker season with these 16 Easy & Cozy Vegetarian Crock Pot Soup recipes!
Vegetarian Crock Pot Soup
It's no secret I love a Crock Pot / slow cooker! I've actually published 40+ Crock Pot recipes on Running in a Skirt and made countless others over the years. Many of the recipes have been Vegetarian Crock Pot Soup recipes! I know how hard it is to search for the perfect recipe so I decided to put my favorite soups together in one easy-to-find resource.
Why Crock Pot Vegetarian Soup?
I started using my slow cooker when my husband and I got married and I needed to cook a meal that would feed both of us, even though we were not eating at the same time because of my crazy work schedule. I still use it just as much because I find it so much less stressful to prepare a meal in the morning than at 6'clock in the evening. Right now I do the prep work for making the slow cooker meal while I'm feeding the babies in the morning and let it sit all day. It's MUCH easier than attempting to cook during the witching hour. I even love the smell of the simmering pot all day. It just gets you excited about your next meal. I know the Instant Pot is all the rage now but I still prefer to do my meal prep early in the day and have it cooking instead of working on it in the evening... even if it is faster.
If you are struggling with a meal plan, I encourage you to bite the bullet and try it. A Crock Pot or slow cooker can be a game-changer. None of these recipes involve a lot of ingredients or a lot of time. They are easy peasy! For many of them, you just dump all the ingredients in and wait.
If you are here today because you already know how useful the Crock Pot can be... explore away! Here are 16 of my best Vegetarian Crock Pot Soup recipes!
16 Vegetarian Crock Pot Soup Recipes
Vegetarian Crock Pot Black Bean Soup
This is an oldie but goodie! You can't go wrong with this simple black bean soup. You can leave it with whole beans or puree some or all of it for a smooth soup. To keep it vegan add avocado on top OR add some cheese if that's your jam. Either way, fresh cilantro is a super tasty addition.
Award Winning Vegetarian Chili
This is the soup that started it all! This was the FIRST recipe I ever published on Running in a Skirt and has been a popular one for years and years. I originally entered this recipe in a chili cookoff... which I one against meat competitors. It's a regular in our family rotation.
Crock Pot Vegetarian Lasagna Soup
This recipe is one of my newer slow cooker soup recipes! It features lots of vegetable lasagna flavor in the soup and then at the end I add fresh-cooked, broken lasagna noodles and a dollop of perfected spiced ricotta cheese. It's unique and totally delicious.
Crock Pot Vegetarian Lentil Soup
Lentils are such a wonderful protein base for vegetarians so I added them to this delightful soup. I filled it out with veggies like kale and carrots. It's tasty, filling and healthy!
Crock Pot Butternut Squash Soup
This creamy vegetarian Crock Pot Butternut Squash Soup uses greek yogurt instead of heavy cream to get a smooth consistency. The post includes my tip to cut a butternut squash easily so you can make this soup quickly and effortlessly. It has a lot of flavor from added apple and carrots!

This is another classic Running in a Skirt recipe that has been in my top 10 on the site for ages. I love how simple and hearty this soup is! Make sure to top it with fresh green onions and parmesan for lots of added flavor.
Vegetarian Crock Pot Taco Soup
This recipe is probably my all-time favorite vegetarian crock pot soup recipes. It is SO easy to make, filled with taco flavors and is enhanced with lots of yummy toppings like green onion and cheese! I even like to serve mine with a side of tortilla chips which is SO DELISH.
Crock Pot Vegetarian Detox Soup
This soup is a thoughtful take on vegetable soup. It's packed with a rainbow of vegetables and features anti-inflammatory spices like ginger and turmeric to bring as many health benefits as possible.
Crock Pot Cauliflower Cheddar Soup
This is soup is my low carb take on classic baked potato soup. Instead of potatoes it features purred cauliflower. It comes out creamy, hearty and super tasty. I know you'll love it! If you are more of a classic potato person, try my Crock Pot Vegetarian Loaded Baked Potato Soup.
Vegetarian Crock Pot Black Eyed Peas and Collard Greens Soup
A tradition in the south is to eat black-eyed peas and collard greens on New Years Day for good luck. I decided to make mine into a vegetarian/vegan-friendly soup that is perfectly cozy and nourishing any day of the year.
Crock Pot Vegetarian Red Pepper Soup
This is my tasty twist on tomato soup! I added lots of gorgeous red peppers for a delicious twist! It's also creamy with the addition of greek yogurt.

I love lentil soup so much that I had to add another to my list! This one features sweet potato instead of carrots. It's the perfect cozy fall meal.

So many delicious soups! I was just thinking about all your soups when I was pinning one last week, they always look so delicious and comforting yet healthy! Thank you for linking up with us for Meatless Monday.
That means so much to me! Thank you!
Holy moly girl - these look so good! I love that you shared all of these awesome sauce recipes. I just signed up to make batches of food for a friend of mine who is blind and I was thinking I should track down some easy crockpot recipes so I could just make batches of food to make him. Perfect timing!
Thanks for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays! I'm pinning & sharing =) Have a great Julie.
These are perfect then! I like making the chili or white bean soup and putting it in big ziplocks for my Mom friends.
Hooray for all the crockpot recipes! I adore my crockpot as well--can't wait to try out these soups (especially the taco soup + the butternut squash soup)! 😀 They all look so good! *-*
How do I just pick one to start with?
I def need to get my crock pot out more often! My old kitchen was SO small I hated using my crock pot. Now that I have more space I need to get it cooking again!
Gorgeous pics too! Where are your bowls from?
Alisa @ Go Dairy Free says
I love how all of your soups are styled the same way! That really makes the soups themselves pop. I think that chunky vegetable soup has my name on it.
Thanks Alisa! I'm not super artistic, so I find something that works and I go with it! haha! Hope you enjoy the soup.
