Ingredients

Soup:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger minced
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth plus more if needed
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 6 cups diced butternut squash roasted or raw
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Toppings:

  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Pepita seeds
  • Drizzle of cream

Instructions

Roast the Squash - optional:

  • For more flavor, mix the cubed squash with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, arrange on a baking sheet, and roast for 30 minutes at 400 degrees F.

Make the Soup:

  • Add all the ingredients from the SOUP section, except the heavy cream, to the slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
  • During the last 30 minutes of cooking, add the cream and use a potato masher to puree the squash.
  • Taste and adjust for salt, pepper, and other seasonings. If the soup is too thick add more warm cream or warm broth.
  • Use a blender or an immersion blender to cream the soup as much as you like.
  • Serve garnished with cream, cilantro, and pepita seeds.
