Crockpot Minestrone Soup

Hi! This recipe is from mooooonths ago (like January?), and too easy.

It’s perfect for a sick day, or for a chilly fall evening <–which is coming kinda, sorta soon (sorry, I know). Because Italian minestrone = all the vegetables.

That’s a loose translation.

I was actually wracking my brain to remember if I had posted this minestrone soup recipe already, but for the life of me, I couldn’t find it anywhere on the blog…….. so I guess that means I never shared it? Or the search function on my blog stinks. Maybe both.

So if I already did, can someone remind me? Mmkthanks.

Anyways, a certain someone I know is feeling a little sickpants this week, which is why I suddenly had soup on the brain. I’m obviously the kind of person who likes to use food to remedy any ailment or life problem, so a summer cold means mandatory soup…. especially one that requires no standing over a hot stove when you could be outside getting a tan or something. No brainer.
