Here’s what you’ll need to make minestrone soup in the slow cooker:

You’ll need vegetable broth or chicken broth, whichever you prefer, crushed tomatoes, green beans, mushrooms, kidney beans, tomatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, oregano, rosemary, thyme, salt, and ground turkey breast.

Some substitutions you can consider are any type of ground meat, beef or chicken will also work, and of course you can use other vegetables if there’s something you don’t like and want to swap out.

How to make Crockpot minestrone soup:

First you need to get your Crockpot ready and stir in the broth, tomatoes, green beans, mushrooms, beans, fresh tomato, carrots, red onion, and spices. Make sure everything is chopped or about the same in terms of size so it will cook relatively evenly.

Next up you want to add the turkey, I usually form it into small meatballs and put it in the soup that way but you can just crumble it up if you like!

Finally, cover the Crockpot and set it on low, this soup cooks best if it can be on a low temperature and cook for a long time, about 6 hours. Be sure to temp your meatballs and make sure they come to the proper internal temperature before serving!
