There are a number of low-fat slow cooker recipes available. Below is just a sample of three delicious, vegetarian soups. However, if you like a little meat, then they can easily be adapted.

Crockpot Barley Vegetable Soup

This is a very nutritious soup that contains a range of delicious vegetables along with barley and sweet potatoes.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 8 hours

Serves: 10

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of medium pearl barley
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 5 ounces of carrots, chopped
  • 2 cups of sweetcorn
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 2 cups of green beans, chopped
  • 14 ounces of canned, diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups of vegetable broth
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • a teaspoon of fennel seed
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Put all the vegetables minus the tinned tomatoes into the slow cooker. Leave on low heat for 6 to 8 hours. After this, pour in the tomatoes, stir, then allow to cook for another 10 to 15 minutes. Take out the bay leaf before you serve.

Crockpot Lentil Soup

Other low-fat slow cooker recipes include lentil soup. This is another richly nutritious soup that leaves room for many variations.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 4-8 hours

Serves: 6

Ingredients:

Preparation:

Put all the ingredients into your slow cooker apart from the salt and pepper. On a low heat, you can leave it to cook throughout the day, but on high, it'll take about 4 hours. You can add potatoes for a thicker consistency or tinned tomatoes or ham for a meatier version, thereby creating other low-fat slow cooker recipes.
