Description

Slow Cooker Curried Butternut Squash Soup is the perfect quick dinner recipe for busy families this fall. Simply combine all of the ingredients in a slow cooker and let it do the work for you. The result is a delicious, hearty soup that is packed with flavor


Ingredients

6 c. butternut squash, peeled and cubed

1 large apple, peeled and cubed

1 large pear, peeled and cubed

3 large carrots, chopped

1 medium leek, sliced
1 t. cinnamon
½ t. allspice
1 T. curry powder

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

2 c. chicken stock, preferably organic
½ c. heavy cream
4 oz. toasted pumpkin seeds
3 T. fresh parsley, finely chopped


Instructions

 

  1. Add butternut squash, apple, pear, carrots, and leek to a 6-quart or larger slow cooker crock. Sprinkle the curry powder, cinnamon, and all-spice on top and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.

  2. Pour the chicken broth over the vegetables and stir to combine. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours. 

 

  1. When cook time is complete, remove lid and cool slightly before pureeing with an immersion blender. (If you don’t have an immersion blender, carefully transfer the vegetables in batches to a blender or food processor to process until smooth).

  2. Temper the heavy cream by adding one or two spoonfuls of the hot vegetable puree to it before adding to the slow cooker crock. Blend with the immersion blender again until the cream is thoroughly incorporated into the soup and the vegetables are completely smooth. (If using a blender or food processor, temper the cream and add it while processing the vegetables).

  3. To serve, transfer the soup into individual serving bowls and top with toasted pumpkin seeds and some fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy!
