Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup, Slow Cooker (Yummly/Life Made Sweeter,Kelly 10/2017 - Melissa)
11/2019 Melissa overdid a lot - using a large (or bigger than large??) and a medium with butternut squash amounts, which is reflected here in stats, Original amounts shown in Notes area.
Amounts / serving need to be refigured next time as well. I did not like this but it was ok- it might be just a matter of trying proper proportions and canned coconut milk. In ways, I wanted it a little sweeter. But rolls, or bread to go with it help a lot. The recipe as Mel made it was very thick. Some of the proportions of the original recipe site were changed by Yummly and I might try using the original, which is reflected in Notes. i should also add on a positive note that I was inspired watching Mel peel and cube butternut - something I have been afraid to try.
"This Slow Cooker Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup is a delicious & comforting dish for a cold day. An easy soup recipe thatís creamy and rich with the addition of sweet potato and coconut milk.
I am a big butternut squash fan and love making various versions of this soup. Itís an easy set and forget slow cooker recipe Ė no babysitting and no worrying about the pot boiling over.
Along with the butternut squash, I added some sweet potatoes to make the soup extra creamy and filling. Thereís also ginger, garlic, turmeric, nutmeg and some cayenne pepper. Pumpkin is another great substitute (or addition) if you donít have any butternut squash.
And if you like an extra kick of heat, try adding some red Thai curry paste. It gives this an extra layer of flavor Ė totally optional but SO SO good.
