It’s no wonder that when most people think of their favorite comfort food, they think of soup. Stirring memories of being warmed up on cold nights or being cared for when sick, a bowl of warm soup is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face. The broth of a good, slow-cooked soup is not just a tummy warmer, it maintains all the nutrients of the vegetables cooked in it, making it an excellent choice for making sure your family is getting their vitamins and minerals.
Here are 5 amazing slow cooker soup recipes we know you’ll love.
1. Slow Cooker Minestrone

For a classic soup that pairs well with almost any dish but is hearty enough to be its own main course, look no further than this slow cooker minestrone recipe by Little Spice Jar. We aren’t sure which is the better, how chock full of nutritious vegetables this soup is, or how easy it is to cook.
“I wonder if it’s even legal for me to call this a minestrone soup recipe? It’s ingredients that get tossed into the slow cooker and a few hours later, they come out in the form of a soup. Don’t you just love lunches and dinners like that? This gal right here is a big fan of those kinda meals,” writes Marzia.

2. Thick and Chunky Beef Stew

What would a slow cooker soup recipe list be without a mouth-watering beef stew? Skinny Ms. offers up this recipe that “will make you feel like the queen at a medieval feast.” Now, you might be tempted to skip prepping the beef, but Cooking Light says it’s well worth the effort. “The caramelized surface of the meat will lend rich flavor to the finished dish. And meat dredged in flour before browning will add body to the sauce.”

3. Sausage, Spinach and White Bean Soup

For a change of pace, try this sausage, spinach and white bean soup found on Damn Delicious. “So hearty, so comforting, and so easy to make right in the crock-pot with just 10 min prep. Easy peasy!” If you would rather use dried beans instead of canned, Serious Eats has some tips. For every 15-oz can of beans called for in a recipe, soak 3/4 cup of the dried beans overnight. The soaked beans should be rinsed and then can be added to your slow cooker the same way you would use canned.

4. Chicken Queso Chili

With a tangy touch and the right amount of cheesy goodness, this chicken queso chili is great on its own or served with tortilla chips. Jenna of Recipe Diaries whipped up this hearty soup while waiting for The Walking Deadto air. We can’t think of a better soup to curl up with while watching your favorite show or movie.

5. Broccoli and Cheese Soup
Is there really such a thing as too much cheese? Not only is this soup a great way to fill your stomach and warm up from the inside out. The best part about this dish? It’s as easy as it gets. “Nearly every broccoli and cheese soup recipe I’ve read calls for the initial step of making a base cheese sauce on the stove, including recipes designed for the crock pot. Because I know we don’t always have time to fuss with this kind of prep (and because my stove has been broken for a month and its replacement is on backorder), I decided to see if I could create a slow cooker broccoli and cheese soup entirely via the “dump and go” method,” writes Erin on Well Plated. Now we can reap the benefits of her work.
