This vegetarian tortellini soup is the PERFECT slow cooker meal. It doesn’t take long to put together, and the combination of vegetables, beans, and tortellini creates a heartwarming dish that is perfect for cold weather.
I’m always a big fan of any slow cooker meal, but this one just might be my favorite. It even keeps well as leftovers! If you are looking for other slow cooker meals, try my chicken tikka masala recipe!
This soup may be vegetarian, but the beans and tortellini make it extra filling! I used a 5 cheese tortellini and absolutely loved it (this is the one I used)–but feel free to branch out! However, keep in mind that if you are using frozen tortellini, it may take longer to cook through.
The perfect vegetable tortellini soup
The best tip I can give for this recipe is don’t overlook sauteing the spices and vegetables before putting them in the slow cooker. This important step helps to more fully develop the flavors of the soup, and helps all of the flavors to blend well together.
Also, make sure to use a high quality tortellini. In reality, any tortellini is fine, but choosing one that adds to the already rich flavor of the soup will really go a long way.
