Tasty Autumn Butternut Squash soup - Slow Cooker Recipe


Until this week - I had never tried butternut squash soup. 

WOW have I been missing out. This is definitely my new favorite soup recipe. 

Halloween had passed, and there were a cauldron full of different types of squash decorating my table. I figured it was time go soupy and make something warming for the Autumn season. 

Here is how I made it - 

Ingredients:

x1 butternut squash
x3 varieties squashes (small) - or just use 2 butternut squash if you don't have any of the other squash.
x2 medium carrots
x1 onion
x2 garlic cloves (optional)
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp corriander
x2 veg stock cube

Method:

1. Peel, core and roughly chop/cube the squash, carrots and onions and place into the slow cooker. 
2. Crush garlic and add to the veg.
3. Add water until it's just covering the veg. 
4. Crush up the vegetable stock cubes and sprinkle over the water.
5. Add the nutmet and corriander, 
6. Mix everything well and leave in the slow cooker on low for 4 hours or high for 8 hours. 
7. Near the end of the cooking time, add salt and pepper to taste (I never add any with the kids but I know some people like that extra kick of flavour). 
8. Put everything into a good food processor and blend until it's smooth. 
9. Serve and enjoy with a chunk of lovely warm crusty bread!!
