You know it's fall when my mom starts making this soup. It is her favourite soup of all time.
Can I take this moment to say what a amazing cook I think my mama is? She usually has a lot she is balancing, but she always made a nutritious supper for our family. Nutritious, AND it always tasted soo good. My kids will not be able to say the same for me, there are certainly nights when five o'clock roles around and I have no plan at all …so we end up eating eggs and toast for dinner. I have to say, I kind of miss having my mom cook supper for me!
One of her biggest strategies to working all day and cooking amazing meals is her crock pot. I know no one who uses a slow cooker more and Squash Soup is one of her specialties.
I am going to go into some extra detail here to talk about prepping the squash, because I have a theory that people are intimidated by that step. I see them standing in front of the bins of beautiful, colourful squash looking a bit bewildered. To help with that, we have put up some info about each variety on our website. There has been some buzz lately about squash being a superfood. It is a nutritional powerhouse, very inexpensive and also beautiful! Yet, I know what people are thinking when they stand at that bin. I really should eat squash…but how?
Start by rinsing the outside.
