How To Make creamy crockpot butternut squash soup

  • 1
    Put all (except cream and flour) ingredients into crockpot, stir and cook for 6 hours on high. When done, take an immersion blender and blend it till smooth.
  • 2
    Add cream and thickener (flour or arrowroot) if needed and then use immersion blender again. You can use blender in small batches too.

    I never use the plastic bag in the crockpot for this recipe, as I want to use the immersion blender. Plus you really don't need it for this soup. You can add more salt if needed.
