Easy Crock Pot Recipes – 13 Bean Vegetarian Soup

Easy Crock Pot Recipes 13 Bean Vegetarian Soup

For the last two nights we’ve been feasting on a giant pot of 13 bean vegetarian soup. This soup is super hearty and perfect for these chilly winter nights we’ve been having. The recipe is simple. Just rinse the beans, place all the ingredients in the crock pot, and turn it on. It doesn’t get any easier than that folks.

Here is the recipe


29 ounce bag Bob’s Red Mill 13 Bean Soup Mix
1 large onion, chopped
3 celery ribs, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups frozen corn
8 cups vegetable broth
2 {14 1/2 ounce} cans diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes


Rinse beans in warm water and add to your crock pot. Add all other ingredients, stir, and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Serve warm with a crusty hunk of bread.

Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze soup for later use.

    Love you for posting this recipe! My youngest daughter is a vegetarian, my husband is vegan, my middle daughter loves meat and my oldest daughter and I eat whatever looks good! I think we will ALL love this! :) Can’t wait to try it!

    Love bean soup. Crockpot busy with scalloped potatoes and porkchops. Firgured if I could make lasagna in there I could “bake” ‘taters. Smells delicious. I have the same crockpot and love it; especially as can take the crock out.

    I always save the bone (with little meat on it) when we have ham….right now that is exactly what’s cooking in my crock pot…pretty cheap dinner

    We love lamb here but it is so spendy so I cheat by using a whole chicken (skinned and cut) and 1 lamb steak…makes all the meat taste like lamb.

    In the summer, since I do not want to heat the house, I cook it in the attached garage.

      Thank you so much for posting this recipe. The only recipe I can find one recipe on the official Bob’s Red Mill site for this soup. It uses a hamhock and we don’t eat meat so that was a fail. I found your recipe and it’s perfect. It can be altered for many tastes. Well done!

    I have a package of Bob’s Red Mill “Whole Grains and Beans Soup Mix” I’m planning to give it a go in the slow cooker soon using your recipe here. I think it should work about the same as with the 13 bean soup mix. We will soon see! Thanks for the recipe. I Love veggetarian slow cooker recipes!!!! They can cook all day while you do other things and by dinner time the house smells so good.

    I added some FieldRoast brand Italian “sausages” just because. :)) It’s in the slow cooker right now on a very chilly, blustery Saturday afternoon. Perfect.

    I cooked this soup in the crock pot for 8 hours on low as instructed and the beans were still hard when we went to eat it. I even soaked them overnight! What went wrong? Anyone else have this issue?

      We have really hard which equals hard beans for normal cooking times. Found out if you add baking soda 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon when cooking really helps. I rarely have issues with hard beans now. Also if beans are really old the will stay hard, and require a much longer cooking time

    I read this on another site: When beans are soft, add tomato (adding acidic foods to beans prevents them from getting soft no matter how long you cook them!)
