Slow Cooker Ham Vegetable Barley Soup is a rustic, delicious soup made with a leftover meaty ham bone. This crock pot ham vegetable barley soup is loaded with healthy veggies!
Add all ingredients to the crock, cover, and cook on Low for 7-8 hours or on High for 4-5 hours, or until the potatoes and carrots are tender.
Remove the bay leaves and the ham bone and discard. Taste and add salt if desired.
Garnish with grated parmesan cheese.
Serve with a nice crusty bread.
This soup works best in a 7 or 8 qt slow cooker. If you have a smaller one, you may need to cut down on the amount of veggies used. Remember that when you remove the ham bone, the volume will decrease.
