Alternative Preparation Method: Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup

 Vegetable Soup
A simmering pot of goodness – the heart of our vegetable soup


  • 4 cups of fresh mixed vegetables (carrots, celery, bell peppers, zucchini, and peas), chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup uncooked pasta (e.g., small shells or macaroni)
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving (optional)


  • Prep the Vegetables: Start by chopping your mixed vegetables into bite-sized pieces. You can use any combination of veggies you prefer.
  • Sauté the Aromatics: In a large skillet, heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté for a few minutes until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
  • Combine Ingredients in the Slow Cooker: Transfer the sautéed onion and garlic to your slow cooker. Add the chopped mixed vegetables, diced tomatoes (with their juices), and dried Italian seasoning.
  • Add Broth and Pasta: Pour in the vegetable broth and add the uncooked pasta. Stir to combine. The pasta will cook slowly in the broth, absorbing all the delicious flavors.
  • Season and Add Bay Leaves: Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Toss in two bay leaves for extra depth of flavor.
  • Slow Cook: Cover your slow cooker and set it on the low heat setting. Let the soup simmer for 6-8 hours. The extended cooking time will allow the flavors to meld together, creating a robust and flavorful Vegetable Soup.
  • Check Pasta and Adjust Seasoning: About 30 minutes before serving, check the pasta for doneness. It should be tender but not mushy. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  • Serve: When the soup is ready, discard the bay leaves. Ladle it into bowls, garnish with fresh parsley, and, if desired, sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve hot and enjoy your slow-cooked Vegetable Soup!

Tips for making Vegetable Soup

 Vegetable Soup
Start with aromatic sautéed onions and garlic for rich flavor.

Cooking Tips

  • Fresh is Fantastic: Whenever possible, use fresh, seasonal vegetables. They not only taste better but also bring a variety of flavors and textures to your soup.
  • Don’t Overcook: Avoid overcooking the vegetables. They should be tender but still have a slight bite. Overcooked veggies can become mushy and lose their vibrant colors and flavors.
  • Homemade Broth: If you have the time, consider making your vegetable broth from scratch. It adds an extra layer of flavor to your soup.
  • Adjust Seasoning Gradually: Season your soup gradually and taste as you go. It’s easier to add more salt and pepper than to correct an overly salty dish.
  • Fresh Herbs: Fresh herbs like basil, thyme, or parsley can elevate your soup’s taste. Add them just before serving for a burst of freshness.

Serving Suggestions

  • Classic Comfort: Serve your soup with a side of warm crusty bread or crackers for a classic and comforting combination.
  • Cheese and Herbs: Top each serving with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese and a touch of fresh herbs for an added flavor boost.
  • Fresh Salad: Pair your soup with a crisp green salad dressed with a light vinaigrette to create a well-balanced meal.
  • Creamy Companion: Stir in a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt for a creamy and tangy twist.
  • Soup and Sandwich: Elevate your lunch by pairing your Vegetable Soup with a grilled cheese sandwich or a hearty panini.
