It has been so cold here lately! So, today I decided I wanted soup! Just a nice simple hearty veggie Crock Pot soup.
This is a great recipe, and hearty soup that the whole family will love. Even the picky eaters at the table will love this homemade soup with its savory broth.
Hearty Veggie Crock Pot Soup
I mean, who doesn’t love a hot bowl of soup to keep them warm on a cold day?
You can make this crockpot soup on the stove top or in your pressure cooker like an instant pot. The best part about this perfect soup is that it’s so customizable you can pretty much throw in all of your favorite vegetables, and it will be yummy.

If you want to add grains to this easy recipe, I suggest red lentils, whole wheat pasta, or brown rice, or you could do any of your family’s favorites.
It only takes a little work and not much time to make this delicious recipe.
Hubby has been my great photographer this year since we are hosting the Super Bowl!
Our town had many activities planned for the game – all week in fact, but, this week school has been closed everyday but Monday and it was just called off for tomorrow! No one wants to go outside!
It’s supposed to snow again tomorrow, there is a chili cook-off planned for Saturday – maybe the weather will cooperate!
Hubby found this amazing display at Walmart yesterday – too cold for a girl to go out!

I used my handy dandy Salt-FREE Mrs. Dash Seasoning Blends they sent me. I used:
Onion & Herb
Garlic & Herb
Tomato Basil Garlic
I really like how they really season without salt! I know that sounds funny – but, honestly I hadn’t tried too many things like this before, but, it really makes for great seasoning – and much healthier for the family, too!
Here’s what I did:
I browned the ground turkey and chopped onion together and put all the tomato products in the Crock Pot,
Then added the turkey and onion mixture and all the veggies and seasonings.
Stirred and left it alone on low for 8 hours, it could be cooked in less time on high.
