Cooking in a slow cooker is ideal for those days when you just done have the time in the evenings to get a dinner together.
I always get my ingredients out the night before, prepare all the veg and meat in the morning put the slow cooker on then when I return after work dinner is done!
This soup is perfect for a winters day and as it is a Vibrant orange it suits this time of year – Halloween!
1 Butternut Squash, diced and cubed
3 big carrots, peeled and sliced
1 big sweet potato
400ml vegetable stock
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp allspice
Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare all of the ingredients and place into the slow cooker.
Turn on to a low heat and leave for 5-6 hours.
Go about your day as normal 🙂
When all of the veg is nice and soft and soaked up the stock, mash it together. You could blend it too a smooth paste but I like mine chunky and it tastes yummy with crusty bread.
Serve with a dash of single cream and a coriander leaf on top.
Ready to eat.
