Basic Ingredients to make a crock pot vegetable pasta soup recipe
If you keep some basic ingredients on hand you can throw together a delicious vegetable pasta soup recipe to cook in the crock pot that is filling and satisfying for the whole family.
The best thing about cooking in a crock pot is that all you have to do is throw the ingredients into the crock pot and forget about it until dinner time.
There is no right way or wrong way to make a crock pot soup recipe. You could make a crock pot soup recipe 20 times a year and come up with a different recipe each time by switching up the ingredients you use.
As long as you have some basic soup ingredients on hand you'll never go hungry.
And it doesn't matter if you do not have all of these ingredients on hand. You can change your recipe simply by adding or leaving out some of the ingredients that I have listed.
I make my crock pot soup the same way I make a traditional pot of soup. The first thing I do is take a quick inventory of the pantry, freezer, and refrigerator.
Basic ingredients for a crock pot soup.
- chicken, beef or vegetables broth or bouillon cubes
- pasta or rice
- canned vegetables
- fresh vegetables
- jarred or fresh minced garlic
- canned beans
- salt and pepper
- soup seasonings, fresh or dried herbs
Sometimes I will add chicken to my soup but if I don't have chicken on hand or just feel like making a vegetable soup I skip the chicken all together.
If I am using chicken I may use skinless boneless chicken breasts or bone-in chicken breasts.
I made a crock pot Southwestern Chicken Chili using the Tyson Grilled and Ready Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips that turned out really good. The Tyson chicken is fully cooked so you can throw it in the crock pot at anytime.
When I use raw chicken I will cook it separately and use the homemade chicken stock instead of canned stock.
