16 Cozy Vegetarian Crock Pot Soups

Get ready for slow cooker season with these 16 Easy & Cozy Vegetarian Crock Pot Soup recipes!

Hi everyone!

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.

Perfect timing!

    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?

    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.
