Soups & Stews

This is where the crockpot really shines.

If you are new to slow cooking, I recommend starting with "wetter" dishes like soups, stews, chilis, and roasts.

There is something for everyone here!

All recipes are completely gluten-free. If you are not gluten-free, simply ignore my notes, or file them away in case you ever need to cook for someone with a gluten sensitivity.

Don't keep making the same soup or stew over and over again! Here are over 80 different soup and stew crockpot slow cooker recipes. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, full of meat -- whatever you are looking for, this list has it!
