Crock Pot Chickpea and Veggie Quinoa Soup

One of my post pinned recipes is this crock pot chopped veggie soup.  Every time I make it, it’s a hit with family, friends and co-workers.  I pretty much refer to it as the kitchen sink soup because you can really throw whatever you want into it.  That being said I decided to play around and try a different variation of this soup using a ton of kale and chickpeas!

  • ½ onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • ½ cup of carrots chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini chopped
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cans of chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • 4-5 cups of kale or spinach. (If using frozen you can use less)
  • ½ cup of quinoa
  • 6-7 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder

  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
Instructions
  1. Sautee carrots, celery, onion and garlic in olive oil for 6-8 minutes.
  2. Transfer vegetables to crock pot.
  3. Using a food processor chop zucchini and add it to the crock pot.
  4. Add kale or spinach or any dark leafy green to the food processor and processes till it's finely chopped.
  5. Add greens to the crock pot along with the rest of the ingredients.
  6. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
Notes
If you don't have a food processor you can finely chop all ingredients.
Frozen kale or spinach works fine too.
Feel free to add or change any of the vegetables to your liking!

This was the perfect meal and comfort last week while I was under the weather with a cold!  It was a hit with the Hubs too and will be going in my crock pot again soon!  A perfect lunch or dinner that will leave you full for hours.  I don’t know about you but I have been living on soup these days now that the weather is turning colder.

Do you have a favorite soup recipe?
