agassifan healthy apple pear butternut soup (crockpot)

Submitted by: AGASSIFAN

Introduction

Low sodium, low calorie, healthy low fat, BIG on flavour, delicious....

I had 4 apples and an asian pear "to use up" and created this soup in my crockpot (any apple or pear can be used in this)...and it came out fantastic! I didn't peel my apples, since I like the fiber aspect, but feel free to peel them if you wish.

Other recipes add cream or half & half, but I don't think it is necessary....feel free to play with the spices, if you don't like curry, leave it out and add some cumin or basil.

You can eliminate the olive oil (which reduces the calorie count to around 127), but the oil gives the soup a better "mouth feel". Feel free to make this vegetarian by swapping the chicken stock for vegetable stock...or even water would be fine, and add a TINY amount of salt.

You may choose to add a dollop of fat free sour cream or yogurt when you serve it....
