Slow Cooked : Minestrone Soup

January is Soup month. And today is another family Favorite – my version of Minestrone Soup. If you Goggle this Soup you will come up with many different recipes but basically it’s a Vegetable Soup – my version is made with whatever I have in the pantry and fridge all cooked low and slow in a Slow cooker. .

My favorite Slow Cooker :

Why I love my Slow Cooker

? I am on my 3 rd one but this one has all the bells and whistles and have become my favorite.  It offers the basics and a handful of special features, like a thermometer probe for cooking to temperature and lid clips for safe and easy transport. I strongly recommend this slow cooker to anyone looking for a uncomplicated, traditional approach to cooking slowly.

My Slow Cooked Recipe;

  • 1 onion chopped fine
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 2 ribs of chopped celery
  • 1 lb Hot Sausage , Cut in 1 inch rounds
  • 1 can diced tomato’s
  • 1 can Mixed 3 Beans (drained)
  • 1 can Chickpeas ( drained)
  • 1 can of Mixed vegetables (drain)
  • 1 Can of sliced potato
  • 4 C vegetable stock
  • 2 C of water
  • 1 Tablespoon of mixed Italian seasoning
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 gloves of mashes garlic
  • 2 C of sliced Cabbage
  • Elbow Noodles : I I like to cook mine separate from the Soup.

I like to put it all in my Crockpot except the Cabbage. And let it cook about 5 hours on Low before adding the Cabbage and let it cook another 2 to 3 hours. If you are in a hurry you can set your Cookpot on High for 3-4 hours.

Set Timer for 6-8 hours on Low or 3-4 hours on Low.

Want to Freeze your soap :

This thick and hearty minestrone soup freezes wonderfully! Freeze in a large freezer-friendly container for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator the day before eating, then reheat on the stove until warm.
