Minestrone Soup (Slow Cooker Recipe)

Minestrone Soup.  I just love soups.  If you have been reading this blog for awhile now, then I am sure you have realized that.  This slow cooker soup is my latest recipe.

I also created a post recently including 6 Healthy and Filling Soups.  I will probably have to add this slow cooker minestrone to it.

This healthy and hearty soup is hearty and filling and it was perfect for the chilly day we had inTexas yesterday.  Soups are great because they are very budget friendly.  They also freeze well, so soups are great for batch cooking.

    1. Haha! I just posted that about an hour ago. I have a collection of soups in this post also. https://mywholefoodlife.com/2013/01/16/6-healthy-and-filling-soup-recipes/
  1. Hi Melissa, we did your fabulous Minestrone yesterday, and it was absolutely delicious! My husband and I have decided to go vegan, and your page has helped tremendously! Thank you for your amazing recipes, I can't wait to try them one by one.. Greetings from Florida!
  2. please stop using canned goods. why not use fresh in your recipes. get lots of tomatos, for instance when in season, chop and freeze -
  3. Hi, just a quick question.. how would you recommend altering this recipe to make without a slow cooker? Could I just cook in a pot over low heat on the stove for the same time periods? Thanks!
    1. You can definitely cook it on the stove too. It may be much quicker that way. I'd say bring it to a boil, then turn down and simmer until the veggies look mostly cooked. Then add the pasta for the last few minutes at the end?
