During fall and winter, soup of all varieties become a staple in my home. From meaty, potato-y, rice-y, creamy, or vegetable-packed, to bean-esque and hearty, I love them all! Creamy winter squash soups tend to be my go-to for lunches once the weather turns cold – they’re so easy to make in volume, and they’re fun to sip on out of an over-sized mug. Butternut squash soup has been one of my seasonal favorites for years, and lately I’ve taken to preparing it in a crock pot.
Preparing this soup is just the easiest. I like to saute the onion and garlic first for added flavor, but in a pinch, you can simply toss every dang ingredient into the slow cooker, turn it on, and have a flavorful soup 4 to 6 hours later. Simply transfer the chunky soup from your slow cooker to your blender to make it ultra creamy and silky smooth.
