Slow Cooker Turkey Minestrone Soup

Here’s an easy crockpot minestrone soup made with ground turkey and lots of vegetables. You can’t really mess this up – you can add more of what you like and less of what you don’t. You can leave out the turkey if you prefer to make it vegetarian style.  You could probably also change out the turkey for a beef minestrone soup.


Chicken broth, 5 cups

Ground turkey, pre-cooked, 16 – 20 ounces

Oregano, 1 Tablespoon

Carrots, 1 Cup sliced

Celery, 1 Cup sliced

Garlic, 2-3 cloves chopped

Onion, 1/2 Cup chopped

Beans, 3 cans, red kidney and/or white northern beans

Tomatoes, 1 can crushed

Pasta, 1 pound, cooked


1.) Pre-cook your ground turkey

2.) Toss the turkey and ALL the ingredients, except the pasta, into the slow cooker.

3.) Cook on high 4-5 hours. Add cooked pasta and serve.
