I have Paleo crock pot recipes for pretty much anything that can be cooked in a crockpot. I pretty much think that crock pots are one of the best inventions when it comes to cooking!
I would not survive making healthy, yummy meals without a crock pot. It is a little bit hard to find good Paleo Crockpot Recipes – but have no fear! I have compiled a list of recipes that will make your life much happier and simpler!
If you see a recipe you like, you may either click on the title or the image and it will bring you to the recipe. I add more and more recipes all the time. So come back often and look for new ones besides finding the old one. You may think I’m crazy, but I actually own three crock pots.
The main reason I have so many is so I can make bone broth in one all the time, one for the main dish and one for the side dish. Plus, I come from a large family and it’s nice to have a few extras around for family parties or to loan to family and friends.
I love using my slow cooker because it is so easy to put all of the ingredients for a complete meal in one pot. Then I can come back to it a few hours later and it is all cooked and ready to eat. I think slow cookers are wonderful. I don’t know how my grandmother ever lived without one. Oh wait, I do know, she spent the bigger part of her day in the kitchen cooking meals. My grandmother really could have used a crock pot.
Paleo Crock Pot Soup Recipes
1. Nourishing Kale Paleo Chicken Soup – See Below
2. The Best Ever Paleo Beef Stew Slow Cooker Recipe – See Below
3. Chicken and Cauliflower Rice Soup – Paleo Hacks
Chicken Breasts – Celery – Carrots – Vegetable Broth – Cauliflower – Bay Leaves – Turmeric – Real Salt – Black Pepper
5. Fall Harvest Turkey Thai Soup – The Skinny Fork
Coconut Milk – Turkey Breast – Broth – Butternut Squash – Green Beans – Red Bell Pepper – Onion – Curry Paste – Fresh Ginger – Lime
This soup is what some peoples dreams are made of. I say that because it’s low carb, low calorie, high protein and delicious. It can easily be made with turkey leftovers. That way the turkey is already cooked and you won’t have to cook the soup for as long as if you used raw turkey. It’s high in protein and full of healthy hearty vegetables and full of flavors.
6. Ratatouille Soup – My Whole Food Life
Tomatoes – Red, Yellow and Green Bell Peppers – Zucchini – Yellow Squash – Eggplant – Onion – Olive Oil – Garlic – Fresh Basil – Fresh Parsley – Real Salt
My mother lived a sheltered life apparently. She had never heard of ratatouille until the Pixar movie came out. Well, she knows what it is now. You don’t need to add broth for the soup because during the cooking process the vegetables release plenty of water.
With all of these vegetables, this makes a lot of soup. Which makes it budget friendly. It can easily be stored in the freezer in serving sized containers for an easy meal on those busy days. You could also add some chicken if you want some meat protein. I think it would be delicious.
7. Low Carb Un-Stuffed Cabbage Roll Soup – Sugar-Free Mom
Olive Oil – Garlic – Onion – Shallots – Ground Beef – Parsley – Oregano – Real Salt – Cauliflower – Broth – Cabbage – Marinara Sauce
There is a link on the blog for a homemade marinara sauce recipe. If you don’t want to bother with making your own marinara sauce you could buy this Wellbee’s Marinara Sauce – Paleo & SCD Approved on Amazon. This is a very low carb meal. If you don’t think you’re a cabbage fan, you should try this, you might change your mind. You could also make this in a pot on the stove. It’s a hearty meal for everyone in your family.
8. Pork Stew with Oyster Mushrooms – The Healthy Foodie
Coconut Oil – Onion – Garlic – Pork Loin – Oregano – Dry Mustard – Nutmeg – Bone Broth – White Wine Vinegar – Oyster Mushrooms – Coconut Milk – Ghee – Capers
If you want to know how to make homemade bone broth, The Healthy Foodie blog has a link to a recipe for it. I enjoyed reading her story about her first time making and eating it. For this you sear the pork first, she also gives specific instructions on how to do that. This is really an interesting stew.
You have to be a mushroom lover to love this. Basically, all it is, is mushrooms, pork, and flavorings like spices and capers and onions. I haven’t been brave enough to try this yet. Let me know if you try it. It sure does look good though.
9. Curry Soup Recipe with Sweet Potato, Chicken & Kale – Ari’s Menu
Sweet Potatoes – Chicken Breasts – Onions – Kale – Garlic – Coconut Milk – Chicken Broth – Curry Paste – Ginger – Green Onion – Sriracha
This is made with yellow sweet potatoes, that’s why it doesn’t look like sweet potatoes. Some people say yellow sweet potatoes are softer and sweeter than orange ones. But where’s the kale? It’s in there, it just isn’t so much that it makes it look very green. This is rich, warm creamy comforting curry soup.
It’s easy to make in your slow cooker and it takes NO prep time. How can that be? Just throw everything in the pot and turn it on. You should probably wash those veggies first though. Ari says no prep time, I don’t think I believe that. I wonder what her definition of prep time is.
Paleo Crock Pot Sweet Potato Recipes
1. Slow Cooker Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup – Life Made Sweeter
Butternut Squash – Sweet Potatoes – Onion – Broth – Coconut Milk – Fresh Ginger – Garlic
On a cold day, this soup is the perfect comfort food. This soup is made entirely in the slow cooker. It is so creamy and rich with the addition of coconut milk and sweet potato. Meals that I make in the slow cooker entirely are my favorite. It makes preparing dinner so easy.
2. Beef and Sweet Potato Chili – Spicy Southern Kitchen
Ground Beef – Onion – Garlic – Crushed Tomatoes – Sweet Potatoes – Chili Powder – Cumin – Oregano – Italian Seasoning – Red Pepper Flakes – Avocado – Red Onion – Cilantro
This is a sweet potato and beef chili that is cooked in the crock pot which helps to marry all the flavors together. There are no beans in this chili but it does have a lot of good nutrition. I think the sweet potatoes add just enough sweetness and the flavor blends well with the spices.
3. Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili – Simple Roots Wellness
Coconut Oil – Onion – Garlic – Carrots – Mushrooms – Sweet Potatoes – Parsnips – Ground Beef – Ground Sausage – Tomato Sauce – Bone Broth – Diced Tomatoes
The things that all kinds of chili have in common are chili powder and tomato base. You can basically add anything you want to that. That’s why this chili is sometimes called garbage soup. Sometimes I literally clean out the refrigerator to make this chili with my leftovers. It’s probably not a good idea to call it garbage soup if you’re serving it to guests, though.
4. Slow Cooker Beef Stew – Living Well Mom
Beef Stew Meat – Olive Oil – Sweet Potatoes – Onions – Carrots – Celery – Diced Tomatoes – Beef Broth – Garlic – Tapioca Starch
This crock pot beef stew is one of our family’s favorites. It’s delicious and easy to make. Cooking it in the crockpot helps make the beef really tender. It also helps the vegetables and the seasonings blend together for a delicious flavor. It is a perfectly satisfying meal for the end of a long cold winters day.
5. Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole – Life Made Sweeter
Sweet Potatoes – Milk – Coconut Oil – Maple Syrup – Vanilla – Toasted Pecans – Almond Flour – Cinnamon – Nutmeg
This is the perfect easy Paleo sweet potato casserole. It’s made in the slow cooker and it’s a healthy side dish. It’s made entirely in the slow cooker. It would be a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving because it would free up some oven space since it’s made in the crockpot.
6. Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Pork Loin – Wicked Spatula
Pork Loin – Apples – Sweet Potato – Red Onion – Honey – Cinnamon
This pork loin with apples and cinnamon is cooked in the slow cooker. It’s really fun to prepare this with the apple slices inserted in the spaces where you cut the pork loin. That also helps the pork loin cook faster and more evenly. The added sweet potatoes and red onion flavors balance well with the apple.
7. Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili with Sweet Potato – Paleo Running Momma
Chicken Breasts – White Sweet Potato – Bone Broth – Green Chiles – Jalapenos – Onion – Garlic – Cilantro – Coconut Cream – Lime Juice
This crockpot white chili with chicken and sweet potatoes is an easy meal for prepare. Of course, it’s all made in the same pot. It would be good for a nice weeknight meal. It’s a good meal to use the leftovers for lunches too. I think this has just the right amount of spices but of course, you can add more or less as you prefer.
8. Slow Cooker Sausage, Kale and Sweet Potato Soup – Wholesomelicious
Turkey or Pork Sausage – Onion – Garlic – Sweet Potatoes – Mushrooms – Chicken Broth – Dry White Wine – Chopped Kale
This soup has a white wine base and it doesn’t have a tomato base like a lot of soups do. The fresh herbs, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and kale add a ton of flavor. If you aren’t a kale lover, you should try it in the soup anyway. You might change your mind at least for this soup.

Butternut Squash – Cook Eat Paleo
If you are in the market for a slow cooker, I recommend this basic one on Amazon. I've found that electronic ones or ones with fancy features aren't necessary.
But really, if you are in the market for a slow cooker, you really should consider getting an Instant Pot instead. Instant Pots have a slow cooker feature, but they also do a lot more - so they save you a lot of space, time and money in the long run.
