Easy Slow Cooker Soups For Fall

A good hearty way to feed a family is with delicious and easy slow cooker soups for fall weather.

I get hungry for easy soups for fall and winter when the weather starts to get cooler outside. A one-bowl meal is easier to prepare and soup is nice and filling.

I’ve found six recipes for slow cooker soups for both meat eaters and those who don’t eat meat.

Potato Soup:

Probably my very favorite soup, year-round, is potato soup.

Years ago, I would often start potato soup cooking in the slow cooker once my girls were off to school. I liked the potatoes with the skins left on. I added carrots and onions.

When the girls got home from school, the scent of potato soup filled our little house.

I also began to make chicken salad sandwiches to have with the potato soup. Putting this meal together became something we often ate. It was cheap and it warmed our tummies during cold weather.

There would always be leftovers and we’d eat potato soup for the next few days.

I’ve somehow lost that old handwritten recipe card for this potato soup. Click on the link and it will take you to one I found online by a recipe blogger.

Creamy Roasted Mushroom Soup:

A few ingredients and just over 30 minutes of work will give you Creamy Roasted Mushroom Soup in your slow cooker.

I love mushrooms and this is a delightful soup to cook and prepare.

Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings:

I remember having this meal when I was a kid. A stomach full of chicken and dumplings was the perfection when the days were cold outside.

Chicken and dumplings are an old-fashioned favorite for many.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup:

If you want to get in all your veggies, there’s nothing more appropriate than vegetable soup.

And it’s usually cheaper without having to buy meat as well.

Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup:

Here is a copycat version of Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi Soup.

Tender potato dumplings with veggies and chopped chicken are delicious with bread, biscuits, or crackers.

French Onion Soup:

When the days are cold and blustery, how about French Onion Soup served along with crusty homemade bread?

These soups can be started in your slow cooker and set to simmer all day to feed you or a hungry family.

Fall to me means falling leaves and children heading back to school and decorating for the season. And meals centered around soup and stew as well.



  1. I love soups…I make what I call a “Lazy” Potato Soup
    Peel & cut up a few potatoes, put in medium size pot, cover them with either vegetable or chicken broth, add chopped onions, Pat of butter, bring to boil, turn down to simmer, then put in a can of cream of chicken soup & simmer till potatoes are done…

    Sometimes I add celery and/or carrots, depending on what I have on hand…

  2. Not a crock pot recipe, but quick, easy and really tasty. Make Pioneer Country Cream Gravy mix (I suppose any other brand would also work) according to package directions, I usually use sodium free chicken broth instead of water. Then stir in a can of drained Sweet Corn and a can of Creamed Corn and you’re set to go. Enjoy as is or add your favorite toppings, crumbled bacon, chopped ham, shredded cheese, croutons or oyster crackers.
    Brenda you wouldn’t have to stand too long to make this.

  3. I am reading this and so hungry for soup! I used to make chicken and dumplings and potato soup all the time for my granddaughter and her college friends! I think I am going to make soup for one of the meals this week!

  4. Soup has always been one of my favorite meals. These photos look so buttery and nourishing. I live in San Diego, but these recipes make me wish for blustery winds and snow drifts.

  5. Brenda-Thx so much for sharing these soup recipes. I have a new crock pot to try out! Have you eaten Indian Naan bread? It’s sold in all stores, sometimes in deli dept. It’s similar to pita. We love it toasted with a touch of butter. It would be delicious with soup! My mom makes a wonderful chicken matzo ball soup. But when I’m ill, I prefer take-out Chinese wonton soup (no shrimp).

  6. That’s what I was going to suggest yesterday for u to find some yummy recipes and food bloggers to see different food blogs. U read my mind! Lol

    My Mom always made homemade chicken soup with orzo. Then my Dad took over making it when he retired. Lol
    I love soups and stews esp in the fall and winter! Yum!

  7. The mushroom soup looked delicious so I clicked through to it even though I don’t have a slow cooker and was pleased to see you don’t need one for this recipe. I’m definitely going to try it soon!

  8. When the weather turns cold my daughter wants potato soup or if she’s not feeling good she requests it. I love chicken and dumplings, oh my so yummy. I haven’t made French Onion soup in years. Will have to try that again. I remember having it served with the bread in the bowl and the cheese melted on top. I make a posole soup with left over roasted chicken. It has hominy in it which I love.

  9. Yum! I love soup all year and these all look really good. As I write I have a chicken barley soup in my little crockpot.
    Thinking of you and Ivy and sending all good thoughts. It’s been quite a summer for you and I admire how well you have adjusted – I know things will be better for you as time passes.

  10. Thank you so much for sharing your soup ideas! I enjoy a large bowl of soup year-round. One of my favs is beef barley vegetable soup. Yum!

  11. Your soups sound delicious 😋 Brenda!!
    We (all of our families!) were raised on so many different soups!!! 🍲
    I just love ❤️ potato, cream of mushroom, & “Everything” vegetable soup.
    Perfect with saltines, 1/2 sandwich, & a few cookies for dessert!!
    My sister & I have been making soup (in our crockpot) all this summer ,,,,, good & satisfying!!! 😊

  12. Oh, good grief, I am now so hungry and starving, for soup, I gotta go see what I have in the fridge available. Love, love potato soup and also chicken soup with home made dumplings. It’s raining here right now, and pretty chilly out there too, so a great day for soup.
    Have a good weekend, Brenda, thanks for soup ideas today. Hugs!!!

  13. Thank you! I love making soup and plan to add all of these to my collection. You found some great recipes. Potato soup was my fav as a child, too.

      1. Thanks for sharing Brenda,
        As a little girl growing up , I remember my Moy mother making Chicken and dumplings Soup. I loved it,and still does today.
