Enjoy the flavors of autumn with this Butternut Squash Soup from your slow cooker.
You see these beauties all the time at farmers markets. You often see them being used as autumn decorations. But these lovely autumn staples are even better when you cook them up.
To begin, peel & de-seed your squash, then cut them into 1 inch cubes.
Place those in your slow cooker along with some vegetable broth, salt & pepper. Cover and cook on high for about 2 hours.
Near the end of the two hours, dice up some red bell pepper and onion, mince some fresh garlic and grate fresh ginger.
Sauté the onions & bell pepper in a skillet over medium heat with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil (or coconut oil.) When they are tender and just beginning to get some color, add in the garlic & ginger. Stir it together and cook for another minute.
Add them to the slow cooker and pour in some coconut milk.
With an immersion blender, mix this until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, use a potato masher and mash it as smooth as you can.
Add in peanut butter, fish sauce, soy sauce and curry powder. Stir them in, then cover and cook for another hour.
Stir in the juice of a lime just before serving.
Top with some sliced scallions and supper is done!
