Cooler weather means it’s soup season!! I am a lover of all things slow cooker, so I played around with some ingredients until I found the perfect family recipe: Quinoa Minestrone Soup. This is a vegetarian soup that is so delicious yet nutritious!
Healthy Slow Cooker Recipe: Quinoa Minestrone Soup
*All ingredients were found at Walmart!
Here is the recipe:
- 1 Jar Prego Farmers' Market® Roasted Garlic Sauce
- 1/2 Onion- finely chopped
- 3 Sweet Peppers- thinly sliced
- 2 Stalks of Celery- chopped
- 2 Cups Vegetarian Broth
- 1 Can Kidney Beans
- 1 Cup Uncooked Quinoa
- 1 TSP Parsley
- Garlic Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- The most simple recipe out there- throw all of the ingredients into the crockpot. Set it on low and let it simmer for 6 hours.
- Depending on your crockpot, you may need to cook for a bit longer. Slowly add in the garlic salt and pepper until just the right amount of spices!
- You an also add some red pepper flakes for a little fire!
I love this Prego Farmers’ Market® Roasted Garlic sauce! Not only is it great for pasta, but it made this soup even easier to make and more delicious. As kids I know we all had Prego sauce, and I so appreciate their new focus to bring the farmers market to the table. This new sauce is made from tomatoes picked at their peak of ripeness, insuring the best taste possible. Prego Farmers’ Market® is also much simpler- only vine-ripened tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, black pepper and oregano. I can’t wait for you to try this delicious recipe- let me know how you and your family love it!

You just combined my two favourite things – quinoa and slow cookers!! ❤ I’ll definitely be trying this out!

I don’t have a slow cooker and with fall here I feel like that’s a huge mistake! This soup sounds so good! Quinoa is one of my favorite grains!!
I’m so happy for the cooler weather. It’s hard to pull out the slow cooker for a hearty homemade soup when it’s 80 degrees out!
Oh My yes please. I am all for a good bowl of warm delicious soup. This is one of my favorites adn I must try your recipe.
This looks yummy! Perfect timing for soup as it is getting colder.
Thank you for this. Just thank you! I am ALWAYS on the look out for vegetarian recipes and this sounds like my taste buds will explode. I will be trying ASAP.
I have never had quinoa before! I bet this soup is so perfect on a cold day!
I have never made a soup with quinoa before. This looks amazing though. Minestrone is one of my absolute favorites.
I love the look of this soup and I don’t think I have ever tried adding quinoa before either! I prefer soup with a substance, watery soup is the worst!
This one realy looks good! I’m pretty sure my husband would love it.
Quinoa is something delicious food I’ve tried! I think I missed this, I’m going to make this one today.
This is something that both my husband and I would enjoy. With a dash of lime juice, please! I love lime and these flavors!
That soup looks so hearty and delicious even though it is vegetarian. Great on a colder day. I would add lime like the previous commenter too. 🙂
This sounds so yummy! I will definitely have to add this to our list of dinner options! Thank you so much for putting this together! Can’t wait to try it!

Oh I really love Minestrone soup! It is one of my favorites especially in the winter when it’s cold!
This is pure genius. I have a thing for soups and if you can add quinoa in there and it looks this delicious…well!!! we are friends for life.
Definitely pinning this puppy 🙂 I’m in need of simple slow cooker recipes like this. Sweet peppers? YES PLEASE!
I just made minestrone soup for my husband and I on Sunday!! It is SO delicious and definitely one of those foods that could be categorized as a comfort food. I will need to try your recipe. Thanks for sharing!
This looks delicious! I love soup for this cold weather and this just looks perfect! I can’t wait to try it!
I love the new Prego sauces! They are so good! I used mine for chicken cacciatore but using it in a soup is a great idea!
Yum! This looks great. I’ll have to try this out. I never thought of using sauce to make soup.
Yes please! I’m always looking for crock pot recipes. Love quinoa so this is perfect. I’m drooling
Wow! That looks so good! I’m sure it tastes even better. It’s the perfect soup to have during the winter, it’s comforting and warm!
this is a recipe that my family would love. We really enjoy quinoa fixed all kinds of ways. Pinning for later!
The recipe says this needs to cook for 4 hours, but the cook time at the top says 6 hours & that prep time accounts for only 15 minutes. I’d like to put this together Monday morning to take to work for a Thanksgiving potluck, but if the real cook time is 6 hours I’ll need to start it about 4 a.m., take it to work and let it finish cooking there. But, if it cooks for 4 hours I can wait to plug it in until after arriving at work.
You can’t call this Minestroni because it must have all 5 essential ingredients. These may vary to suit your taste. They are 1) pasta 2) green leafy veg 3) aromatic veg 4) beans 5) root veg. It only has the aromatic and root veg.
Should have said it has 3 out of 5 with the beans
