Crock Pot Vegan Butternut Squash Soup

Crock Pot Vegan Butternut Squash Soup-The ultimate fall soup- creamy, hearty and delicious!

Crock Pot Vegan Butternut Squash Soup

Fall officially marks the beginning of crock pot season in my house. Thick, hearty soups are my favorite meal to slow cook. As an added bonus, they make the house smell amazing!

Butternut squash are abundant this time of year. I prefer to use a whole butternut squash, rather than the pre-cut pieces that are available in the produce section. It requires a bit more work, but the taste is worth it!

Butternut squash has a sweet, nutty taste that’s similar to pumpkin. It’s great in soup or it can be halved and stuffed with anything from quinoa to black beans. Butternut squash doesn’t only taste great, it’s packed with nutrients! One serving of butternut squash contains more than 100% of your daily requirement of vitamin A. It’s also high in vitamin C, low in calories, and a good source of fiber.
