Simple Supper Tuesday #2- Crock Pot Vegetable Soup

Welcome to week two of Simple Supper Tuesday. I am so happy that my first week was a total success! With almost 30 entries, I think it was a great launch to a fun linky party!

With the cold weather, I find myself making more soups and I love variety when it comes to meals. I've amassed quite a soup collection here on my blog and was surprised to see that I hadn't ever posted a vegetable soup. I love veggie soups! I like to call them, bottom of the crisper soups. I always tend to make them when I have a little bit of this and leftover that to use up. This time I added chickpeas for protein and because I'm nuts for chickpeas. I'd eat them every night if I could, LOL. Paired with a great loaf of fresh bread, this soup is a perfect way to warm up on a cold winter night.

Crock Pot Vegetable Soup
printable version

1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 C celery, sliced
1 C carrot, sliced
3/4 C green pepper, diced
1 C green beans, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 1/2 C broccoli florets
1- 16oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 14.4 oz can chick peas, drained and rinsed
6 C water
squeeze of honey (optional)

In your crockpot, mix the water, crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano salt and pepper. Add in remaining ingredients and cook on LOW for 6-8 hrs. Before serving taste for seasonings, adding salt and pepper if needed. Stir in a generous squeeze of honey if the soup is too acidic, due to the crushed tomatoes.

Your vegetable soup looks delicious, and I like that it can be made in the crock pot. I love chick peas too. I'm really excited to discover your linky, and look forward to visiting next week :) Thank you for sharing your recipe with the Hearth and Soul hop.
