EASY Butternut Squash SOUP in crockpot

1 large butternut squash, peeled and cubed (poke holes in squash with a fork and microwave for 1 min or so to make it easier to peel, then cube).

1 can full-fat coconut milk

1 cup chicken broth

1 apple, peeled and cut into chunks

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ginger

Place all ingredients in slow cooker and set to Low. Allow to cook 6 to 8 hours. When squash is soft, blend soup with an immersion blender or carefully transfer to a blender to process. Consistency should be smooth and silky. Season with salt and pepper. Top with a swirl of olive oil.

Easy, yummy dinner for the family

Yay. My kids, who don’t like spaghetti squash, INHALED this dinner. It was pretty easy….a great one to make ahead and I highly recommend doubling the recipe. You’ll want some leftovers of this one. Promise. I would also recommend adding more veggies to this dish. I added red pepper….next time I’ll add mushrooms, another red pepper and spinach.
