Butternut Squash Soup in a Slow Cooker

I am clearly at that point in my life where I cannot make a meal that doesn’t involve a slow cooker. It’s easily my best friend right now because I can’t find enough time to even shower, never mind cook an entire dinner.

I love when fall comes around because it gets me excited for all the meals that come along with it. I have an unhealthy obsession with butternut squash soup and decided it was time to attempt my own at home. I found the perfect recipe and adjusted it slightly so that it was to my liking. I based my recipe off of this one here.

Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup
Recipe Type: Soup
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 4 hours 20 mins
A delicious fall soup for your slow cooker
Ingredients
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 Gala apple, cored and diced
  • 1 medium (uncooked) butternut squash, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper, or more to taste
  • pinch of ground cinnamon and nutmeg
  • (garnishes: candied pecans & a sprinkle of nutmeg)
Instructions
  1. Add chicken broth, garlic, carrot, apple, butternut squash, onion, salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg to a slow cooker. Toss to combine.
  2. Cook for 6-8 hours on low, or 3-4 hours on high, or until the squash is completely tender and mashes easily with a fork.
  3. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth, if you have one. If not, you can transfer the soup in two batches into a traditional blender, and puree until smooth. Just be careful since the soup will be very hot. Taste, and season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
  4. Serve warm, with optional garnishes if desired.

  1. Butternut Squash just seems to lend itself so nicely to soup. Your version sounds great. Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesdays link up. Hope to see you back next week.

  2. Yum, this looks great. I’ve been cooking a lot with butternut squash this year but have yet to make soup. I will have to add this to my list of must dos! Thanks for sharing with us at Throwback Thursday we hope to see you again this week.
