Slow Cooker Healthy Fall Soup

Home ยป Slow Cooker Healthy Fall Soup


This is one of my favorite fall and winter soups. It’s full of my favorite fall vegetables. This recipe makes a lot of soup, in fact, fills the entire slow cooker. You’ll want to make sure you’re using at least a 5-quart slow cooker for this recipe. This soup freezes really well and we can get several meals out of one batch. You can keep this soup perfectly clean, healthy and low calorie by skipping the cream, but I find that the cream adds a nice body and texture to the soup. Even with the cream, you’re looking at less than 100 calories per cup of soup. Healthy soups can taste great too!
