It’s officially fall and I have been using my slow cooker all week and loving it! A little prep work in the morning leads to a wonderful smelling house all day and some time left over at the end of the day for myself. Soups are one of my favorite meals to make in the slow cooker. Soups are also a great way make sure you are getting in your vegetables.
This Butternut Squash & Apple soup looks and tastes like Fall! Make sure to use fresh squash and apples for an amazing, flavorful healthy bowl of soup that will warm you and your family on a crisp fall evening. Because this soup is pretty much squash based, sometimes my older children aren’t exactly thrilled when they see this on our dinner menu. I solved that problem by offering warm homemade bread along side this soup and they just love it. This recipes makes a lot of soup, so it’s perfect for larger families or gatherings. It can also be frozen, which I like to do to be prepared for a night I may not have a lot of time on my hands. Garnish this fall soup with freshly grated Gruyere cheese or croutons for a beautiful touch. What soups do you like to make in your slow cooker when the weather turns cold?
