Soup is an easy and delicious comfort food. When it’s cold outside there isn’t much else that will warm you up from the inside out like a hot bowl of soup. What’s better than a bowl of soup? A bowl of soup that has been cooking in the slow cooker all day. I love being able to put fresh ingredients into the crockpot in the morning and have a home cooked meal ready to go when it’s time for dinner.

This Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup is not only hearty, but it’s healthy. All those beautiful vegetables that you are adding in retain their vitamins and minerals because you are not dumping out the water, you are making a delicious broth. By using spinach in this soup recipe you are adding folic acid, calcium and fiber. Spinach leaves also contain lutein, which has been shown to help to prevent cataracts. Soup obviously has a high water content which means it will not only fill you up, but it will also help hydrate you.

I did add noodles to this slow cooker vegetable soup recipe, you can feel free to leave them out or if you follow a gluten-free lifestyle, feel free to substitute those. And if you do want to make this a gluten-free vegetable noodle soup, you definitely can. Gluten-free noodles can get sticky and soggy, be sure to add those in the last 20 – 30 minutes of cooking or cook them separately per package instructions and ladle the soup over the top when ready to serve.

Notes

Depending on the type of noodle, soup consistency may change. Can cook noodles separately and serve soup over cooked noodles. Cooking times may vary.
My family likes a little bit of "heat" in just about everything, so we enjoyed adding the hot sauce and red pepper flakes for a little extra flavor.  Feel free to leave the red pepper flakes and hot sauce out if desired.  However, that amount does not make it "spicy" it just adds a little extra to the flavor profile.

Crockpot Vegetable Soup with Noodles

I hope you enjoy this Crockpot Vegetable Soup as much as we do!

I love homemade vegetable soup for many reasons, but one of them is that it is so versatile.  If your family doesn’t like garbanzo beans, leave them out!  If you want to add black beans to this vegetarian soup, go for it!  Only have half of an onion and a couple stalks of celery in your refrigerator, no worries!  If your family doesn’t like chunky tomatoes, consider adding in corn or even potatoes.  If you are lucky enough to have a garden and fresh vegetables are at your finger tips, head out to the garden and grab your favorites to add to this fresh veggie soup.
