This Veggie Soup is gluten free and packed with nourishment and flavor! Easy to make in the crock pot or stove! Paleo friendly with simple wholesome ingredients.


Units Scale
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups chopped potato (russet or sweet potato)
  • 2 cups brussel sprouts, diced or quartered
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 5 pieces of smoked bacon (cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 2 tsp dried herbs (chives, oregano, or basil)
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 tsp kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey mustard (or dijon mustard)

Optional toppings – fresh herbs, shredded cheese, etc.


  1. First make sure all your ingredients are chopped. 3 cups chopped potato was equivalent to about 2 potatoes.
  2. Lightly steam/soften your potato pieces in a small bowl in microwave for about 90 seconds. Then add to your crock pot.
  3. Add in your broth, veggies, and bacon on top.
  4. Mix in your herb, seasoning, and the oil/mustard.
  5. Cook on low for 5-6 hrs or high for 3 hrs.
  6. Serve and top with aged cheddar and herbs, if desired.
  7. See notes for non crock pot times.


If you are not using Crock pot, follow same prep direction but cook on medium low stove top for about 1 hr or until bacon/potato are thoroughly cooked through.
