I initially became a forensic nurse because I’m absolutely fascinated by true crime.  I’m a little late to the game, but I have been binge-listening to this podcast like a crazy murderino.  It’s number two this week on itunes comedy podcast chart (previously it’s been number one)!

Have a Lovely Weekend!

“That’s the trendy soup to make”

 

soup

That’s what my brother said when I texted him that I had made this for the previous night’s dinner.

Although it’s definitely not the only thing you can make with butternut squash, 100% of the people I asked at the CSA pick-up yesterday make soup.  And even though I posted a similar recipe almost exactly one year ago, this one checks off so many more boxes.

Whole30?  check…vegan?  check…one step cooking? check again.

Any meal that can be tossed together in a slow cooker and forgotten about is a HUGE WINNER in my book.  This recipe requires no pre-cooking of rice, no fussing, no monitoring.

I followed Gimme Some Oven’s recipe almost exactly, with just a few adjustments.  Other options for garnish include toasted nuts or seeds, croutons, roasted chickpeas, and toasted coconut.

Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup from Gimme Some Oven

Ingredients

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and diced
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 firm apple (recipe calls for Granny Smith, but I used whatever I had-Fuji maybe?)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp red cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 can coconut milk
  • 1 sprig fresh sage

Place all ingredients in a slower cooker and toss to combine. Cook on low 6-8 hours, or high for 4 hours, or until squash is tender. Remove the sage sprig.

Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until it is velvety smooth. Alternatively, you may blend in batches in a blender.

Stir in the coconut milk.

Garnish with more coconut milk and cayenne to taste.

*Note: I found the soup to be very thick the next day. I added another 3/4 cup of vegetable stock in as I reheated to thin it.
