The Saturday Simmer: Slow cooker soup recipes

Slow cooker cabbage soup with chicken apple sausage, from Simple Nourished Living.

It's that time of year. You've got a zillion things going on this weekend: chauffeuring the kids to sports and play dates, friends coming over for lunch, leaf raking, and all the usual errands to run. Who has time to cook? You do, with your slow cooker doing most of the work. Soups like this slow cooker cabbage soup with chicken apple sausage, from Simple Nourished Living, cook all day while you're busy with life. Why not make a double batch, in your largest cooker (a six-quart size, at least), and freeze the leftovers for quick and easy worknight dinners?

A lot of different slow cooker soups caught my eye this week:

Slow cooker lentil soup with bacon, from The Lemon Bowl

Slow cooker cabbage soup with chicken apple sausage, from Simple Nourished Living

Pesto minestrone soup (slow cooker recipe), from A Year of Slow Cooking

Indian-spiced slow cooker red lentil soup with spinach and coconut, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Slow cooker beef and barley soup, from Picky Palate

Slow cooker chicken lemon orzo soup, from 365 Days of Slow Cooking

Slow cooker split pea soup, from Lemons and Anchovies

Crockpot Cuban black bean soup, from Jeanette's Healthy Living

Slow cooker leek and potato soup, from Diethood

Chicken enchilada soup, from Real Mom Kitchen

Slow cooker turkey tomatillo and pinto bean soup with corn, from Everyday Maven

Spanish-style split pea soup, from Kayotic Kitchen

Which will you try first? What intrigues you? Please leave feedback on the original recipe post, and let us know if you've made or adapted any of these recipes. See you next Saturday, and every Saturday, with more soups, stews and chili.

Thanks for this! Wish I'd seen it earlier than Sunday evening ;) Will plan for next week... the Beef & Barley first!
