Slow Cooker Paleo Apple and Parsnip Soup

  • Cooking Time:

    10–12 hours
  • Servings:



6 Parsnips, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
2 Large Red Apples, peeled and quar­tered
1 Large Onion, chopped
32 oz. Veg­etable Broth
1 c. Water
2 Sprigs of Fresh Thyme
1 tsp. Fresh­ly Grat­ed Gin­ger
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Minced Gar­lic
Olive oil, for gar­nish

This time of the year we think of warm tasty soups, and with Slow Cook­er Paleo Apple and Parsnip Soup you will def­i­nite­ly enjoy the warm com­fort of this great soup!

  1. Rinse leeks then slice in 2-inch pieces.  Soak in water for 15 min­utes to remove any excess dirt.
  2. Chop oth­er veg­eta­bles while leeks are soak­ing.
  3. Place all ingre­di­ents in a 6-Quart slow cook­er.
  4. Cov­er and crock on LOW 10–12 hours, or until veg­eta­bles are ten­der.
  5. Turn slow cook­er off and remove lid.
  6. Remove thyme sprigs.
  7. Use an immer­sion blender and puree soup until smooth or to your desired tex­ture. If soup is too thick, add more water or broth to your lik­ing.
  8. Serve hot and gar­nish with a driz­zle of extra vir­gin olive oil if desired.

NOTE:  Can sub­sti­tute veg­etable broth with chick­en broth.

I was try­ing to look at the com­ments and acci­den­tal­ly clicked and rat­ed the recipe poor. I am hop­ing there is a way you can take off that rat­ing so it doesn’t affect you. Sor­ry about that, but look­ing for­ward to try­ing this!


Can you clar­i­fy the ingre­di­ent list and com­pare it to the recipe steps 1 and 2? Ingre­di­ents include parsnips, but recipe states “Leeks”. I enjoy your web­site and have enjoyed each recipe I’ve used. Thank you!
