Slow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupNovember 10, 2020
Add a creamy, sweet, and super seasonal spin to your holiday menu with this delicious, Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup.
It’s soup season AND squash season, so we couldn’t let this time pass us by without a delicious, creamy Butternut Squash Soup recipe. Butternut squash is a go-to for many in the fall season – and for good reason! Not only is butternut squash a source of fibre, vitamin C, and magnesium, it can be used in a variety of ways. Enjoy butternut squash puréed, roasted, toasted, mashed, or even in baking! Today, we’re making a classic Butternut Squash Soup.
Soup isn’t typically easy, but because this recipe bakes in a slow cooker, it’s perfect for busy days when you need an easy, hands-off dinner. Just throw all the ingredients into your slow cooker, get all your daily tasks done, and still come back to a knock-your-socks-off fall soup recipe.
Fresh Tip: While this recipe is already vegetarian if you’d like to make it vegan, substitute the cream with your choice of non-dairy milk. We enjoy coconut or soy milk.
