Default Tuscan Crock Pot Vegetable Soup

This meal is both filling and fulfilling! The flavors are great. It is very versatile and can be made ahead, or saved frozen as leftovers in small containers for a quick microwave lunch. It's also perfect pureed as a warming bisque.

Serving size: 1 1/2 cups
Calories per serving: 140*

  • Non-stick cooking oil spray
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch Kale, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 medium turnip, chopped
  • 2 cups green beans cut into 1" pieces
  • 1/4 head Savoy cabbage, chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped

  • 2 14.5 ounce low sodium diced Italian style tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 15.5 ounce cans Cannellini beans, drained
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste


Spray bottom of a large soup pot with the non-stick cooking oil and place on medium-high heat. Add onion. Cook onion while stirring until translucent. Add garlic. Don't let it brown. Continue to stir and saute a few more minutes. Add a bit of the chicken broth if needed. Add the rest of the vegetables. Add a little more broth, about half a cup. Saute for 1 to 2 minutes - Don't cook through. Add thyme, salt and pepper while sauteing.

Put vegetables in crock pot. Add tomatoes and juice, the remaining broth and drained Cannellini beans. Fold to mix.
