What’s your favorite winter soup? Do you make it in your slow cooker?
Super Easy Slow Cooker White Bean Veggie Soup uses 4 or 5-quart slow cooker, but should work in a 6 quart too. It also uses dried beans – making it budget-friendly too.

Granted, this soup doesn’t look like much. Even the ingredients are simple in this Asian Corn Cabbage Soup. This is one case where the ‘whole’ is more than its parts. This is a must try!
Creole Corn and Okra Soup is a bowl of warmth and comfort. It’s great after a long day at work and keeps well in your slow cooker if you end up in one of those meetings that last forever.
Feeling a little under the weather? This Get Well Quick Chickpea Soup is just the thing you need. It uses Kamut but will work with wheat berries, barley, oat groats, even millet, if that’s what you have on hand. Keep a few servings in the freezer so you’ll be prepared for a cold later on.
This is a basic lentil soup recipe. I used a fancy mix of lentils, but it’s still a brown soup in the end, so you can use what you have in your pantry right now.
Want to make just enough soup for two? This thicker than fog split pea soup cooks up in your 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cooker. Remember that you can cut the other recipes in half to modify them for your smaller slow cooker. Alternatively, you can double this one to serve a larger family.
