What could be easier than tossing all of the vegetables in the slow cooker, turning it on low and just going on about your business during the day. Then, when supper time arrives, just lifting the lid and spooning out big bowls of piping hot, vegetable soup.

I know I’ve said it time and time again, but slow cookers are one of the most brilliant inventions for busy families. Ever.

That and a good cup of coffee me incredibly happy!

      I never use canned veggies when I do soup for texture and sodium reasons. I always buy a family sized bag of mixed veggies and add frozen lima beans. Just throw them in the pot (slow cooker) frozen with the rest of your stuff.

  14. 19

    If I want to leave out the ground round, do I still need to brown the onions before I add them to the crockpot? I feel like they would cook in the four hours allotted for cooking, I just wanted to get your thoughts.

  15. 21

    Does this soup freeze well?

  16. 22

    Can you use frozen vegetables instead of canned

  17. 23

    Why is this called vegetable soup when it contains meat?

  18. 25

    How long would you cook it if you cooked in on high?

    This recipe was delicious, but you need to add some salt. I would say 2 t. to 1 T.

    Sounds AWESOME!!! I could eat soup every day!! Just a dumb question though. Are you using the 2 cans mixed vegetables PLUS the other items listed or in place of them?

  22. 29

    Tried this soup last night, and loved it! So easy and inexpensive, and perfect for the single-digit temperatures we’ve been having here this week! I used all canned vegetables, but rinsed everything except the tomatoes and tomatoes/okra, just to try to cut some of the sodium. I thought it turned out perfectly that way, and my husband liked it too.

    I will definitely make this again. I’m also going to post a link on my blog. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I wanted to make this all veggies, so I skipped the meat. I also substituted the water for chicken broth, and added garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. It was amazing!

  24. 31

    This looks great. I’m curious. Is there a health reason for draining the vegetables from cans? I can understand draining and rinsing beans, but I wondered if there are preservatives or additives that get rinsed away if draining and substituting the water. Also, would you recommend not adding low sodium beef broth verses water? If so, why? Thanks!

  25. 32

    I like to use fresh or fozen vegatables. I was wondering what are in the mixed canned vegatables? I couldn’t really tell by looking at the pictures. Thank you.

    Brown onions and celery.
    Include parsnips and carrots.
    Mixed frozen veggies(corn peas etc…)
    Canned tomatoes etc…
