Ingredients

  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1 medium-large butternut squash peeled, seeded and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes about 1 ½ pounds, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 apple cored and cut into 1-inch pieces (apple is optional - see note below*)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups low sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a 5 quart (or larger) slow cooker. (I use this slow cooker and love it!)
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
  • Puree the soup until smooth, either with an immersion blender or by transferring to a counter-top blender in batches. Taste and add additional salt and pepper as needed.

Notes

*With the apple, this soup has more sweetness to it. I like it both with and without the apple.
