Slow cooker Butternut Squash soup

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!

Ingredients

1 Butternut Squash, diced and cubed

3 big carrots, peeled and sliced

1 big sweet potato

400ml vegetable stock

2 cloves of garlic

1tsp coriander

1/2 tsp allspice

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

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.

Ready to eat.
