Preparation and Storage
Make-Ahead + Storage: This Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup Recipe is make-ahead-friendly! Store cooked leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and enjoy them within four days.
Freezing/How to Freeze: Transfer freezer-bound leftovers to an airtight, freezer-safe container or bag, and enjoy them within three months.
How to Reheat: Reheat leftovers using your microwave, stovetop, or CrockPot, depending on how many servings you prepare. Thaw any frozen portions overnight in the fridge to ensure they warm up evenly.
Substitutions: We make our CrockPot Vegetable Soup plant-based, but you can replace the vegetable stock with chicken or beef stock if you consume meat and want to infuse the veggies with these flavors.
Additions: Add in green beans, bay leaves, oregano, basil, thyme, russet potatoes, fresh parsley, red potatoes, leeks, Yukon gold potatoes, red peppers, fresh herbs, red pepper flakes.
Vegetarian Option + Vegan Option: This chock-full-of-goodness soup is vegetarian and vegan-friendly!
Gluten-Free: This soup should be gluten-free since none of the components typically contain gluten, but you should check the labels on the packaged ingredients if you are highly sensitive.
Alcohol-Free Option: We don’t use alcohol in our soup. The Pyper’s Kitchen has a Vegetarian Rice Soup made with a splash of sherry if a sherry-infused veggie soup sounds yummy.
Smaller Serving Size + Larger Group/More Servings: The written recipe makes six servings. Scale it up or down to your desired yield, keeping in mind that you may need to work in batches if you scale up.
Make it Spicy: Replace the diced tomatoes with a spicy variety of Rotel to add a spicy Southwestern flair to this versatile vegetable soup.
Sugar-Free: The written recipe contains 12 grams of sugar per serving. Opt for sugar-free diced tomatoes and corn niblets to make it sugar-free.
Tips for the Best CrockPot Vegetable Soup
