  • 2 cups sliced carrots
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green beans
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 2 cups vegetable juice (I used R.W. Knudsen, Organic Very Veggie Juice, no sugar added)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth, low-sodium


Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker, cover and cook on low 6-8 hours, or until veggies are tender. Add a tablespoon of reduced fat cheddar cheese, if desired.

NOTE: If you prefer a less subtle onion and garlic taste, saute onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute 1 additional minute. Add to slow cooker along with other ingredients.

To make this even more of a Superfood Soup, add 2 cups coarsely chopped kale the last 5 minutes of cooking, or until wilted.

    I don't really like sweet potatoes, how much difference would subbing a different potato make??

    • Skinny Ms.  March 1, 2013

      Jenn, Well, regular white potatoes are not a superfood…but it would work fine.

    • SkinnyMs  March 6, 2014

      it would be fine to sub a different potato or to put butternut squash in it's place.

  2. Patty  April 8, 2013

    I've recently been tested again for allergies–sadly tomatoes have showed up again–how can I adapt this recipe to leave out tomatoes? thx!

    • Skinny Ms.  April 11, 2013

      Patty, Sub with another liquid…maybe carrot juice.

    • Jessica  November 18, 2013

      you can use roasted red peppers and puree them for the color of tomatoes!

  3. shenifa  May 2, 2013

    What is i don't have a slow cooker, can i use the stove?

  4. Kim  June 17, 2013

    Lentils would be a nice addition to this recipe!

  5. Susan  July 7, 2013

    shredded chicken would amp up the protein too – need to try this this weekend 🙂

  6. Karen  August 12, 2013

    Made this soup for dinner this evening and it is SO GOOD!! Great flavor and very satisfying.

  7. Kim  August 17, 2013

    Can I add chicken or other meat and follow the same directions/recipe?

    • Skinny Ms.  August 18, 2013

      Kim, Sure! I would recommend cutting the chicken/meat into 1-2″ cubes before adding to the slow cooker.

  8. Rachel  October 29, 2013

    This was excellent. Lots of flavor! I did add the kale (I added a whole "bunch"–should have done half that). Very good.

    • Skinny Ms.  October 30, 2013

      Rachel, Thanks so much for the feedback!

  9. Nicole  January 1, 2014

    Stumbled upon this yesterday. It's in the crockpot now! Adding spicy hot Italian sausage and packaging into individual freezer containers to take to work. My co workers are going to be so jealous of my lunches! This is my new favorite website. Thank you.

    • GaleCompton  January 2, 2014

      Nicole, Thank you so much! Lots more yummy recipes coming soon. 🙂

  10. Catherine  January 6, 2014

    I was a little nervous about the sweet potato, but this soup is delicious!! I think I actually think I will change any other stew/soup recipe to adapt for sweet potato:) Thank you so much for posting!!

  11. Simply Shari's  March 12, 2014

    I can't wait to make this recipe. I'll be using V8 juice as it is gluten free. Thanks!

  12. Mindee  June 11, 2014

    Unfortunately, 6-8 hours does not work for our schedule, as we are usually gone for 10 or so hours for work during the day. Can I cook on high for 4-6 hours (or do you have a suggested time on high) or would that ruin it?

    • SkinnyMs  June 13, 2014

      Hi Mindee, Yes you can cook it on high for 3 to 4 hours.

  13. Paige  July 6, 2014

    Would this be considered a gluten free recipe?

    • SkinnyMs  July 7, 2014

      Yes, but you should check the chili powder, canned beans, broth, and juice to ensure that additives with gluten are not in the ingredients. Particularly, you might want to check that the chili powder brand is gluten free.

  14. Teresa  August 11, 2014

    Can you substitute something else for the cilantro… Ugh..

    • SkinnyMs  August 11, 2014

      Teresa, Parsley is a great substitute for cilantro.

  15. Nancy  October 25, 2014

    Need a reduced carb version. I guess taking out the black beans and potato and adding some protein, like chicken, would do it.

    • Sam  January 24, 2015

      Black beans are a protein

  16. angie  December 8, 2014

    Thank you for your time and sacrifice to post these recipes. You have helped me to look forward to cooking once again and healthy.

  17. bxgirl  January 18, 2015

    what is a good substitute for the vegetable juice? I don't keep that around .,. I tried searching the web but they just tell me how to make the stuff. I may just throw in some tomatoes

    • SkinnyMs  January 19, 2015

      bxgirl, You can puree some tomatoes in the blender and use those instead.

  18. Learning2Cook  January 31, 2015

    This is one of my new favorite recipes! It's one of the first things I decided to make in my first crockpot, and what a great decision that was! I like it best with kale, and you can even throw some other things into it, such as corn and chickpeas, and it still turns out just as great. I see suggestions to add meat, and I think that sounds like it would be delicious. I can see shredded chicken pairing very well with all of the veggies in the soup. It ends up sweeter than I'd prefer – I guess from the sweet potato – but it's still absolutely yummy! I think that it has a unique flavor, and after recommending it to several other people, it's become a big hit elsewhere, too!

    • SkinnyMs  February 2, 2015

      Learning2Cook, Thanks for the great feedback and for sharing!

  19. Janet  February 29, 2016

    Sound delicious but could I replace the black beans with navy or kidney beans?

  20. Eddren  April 20, 2016

    Can you use dried black beans since is cooking for 6 to 8 hours?

    • Gale Compton  April 20, 2016

      Eddren, Just be sure to following the cooking instructions, i.e., soak time, boil first, etc. 🙂
