This slow cooker curried butternut squash soup is healthy, light and wonderfully filling. Perfect for cold weather!

Slow Cooker Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Last fall, shortly after my baby was born, a friend of mine brought me some lunch. She brought a salad, some apple chips and a bowl of pumpkin soup. That pumpkin soup seriously rocked my world! It was made with ‘real’ pumpkin, not from canned pumpkin (I’m not knocking canned pumpkin – I use it all the time – but what a difference!) and it was pureed and topped with a drizzle of roasted pumpkin oil. So gourmet! (and incredibly thoughtful because let’s face it, lunch like that wasn’t happening very often during those early baby days!)

I remember feeling so healthy after eating that soup, knowing it was just a bowl of pure goodness. Normally I prefer chunky soups but for some reason, a squash soup like that pumpkin soup or this Slow Cooker Curried Butternut Squash Soup is just perfect pureed smooth.

Slow Cooker Curried Butternut Squash Soup

This slow cooker curried butternut squash soup is made in the slow cooker, and is so easy to put together. I added spices to the squash, along with apples and carrots. You will need an immersion hand blender to puree it directly in the slow cooker, but if you don’t have one (I highly recommend them!) you can puree in the blender but please please let it cool a bit first and be careful while doing it. (Here’s a helpful post on how to puree hot soup in the blender without an explosion.)

I think a drizzle of roasted nut oil (like this roasted walnut oil) would be a nice addition to this soup. I wish I tried it! But, luckily this soup freezes very well so when I pull it out from the freezer I will have to remember to try it next time.

Regardless…you will feel so absolutely healthy after eating this soup. I promise. 🙂

    Now this soup, it’s jut so gorgeous. I do not make enough soup. Time to change that. Hopefully I can make it look half as pretty as yours.

  14. Just curious what kind of apples you used. I’m guessing any would work fine but wondering what you prefer. Thanks for the deliciousness

    • Hi Cassi! I typically use a combo of apples for this, usually a Granny Smith and Fuji (because those are what I buy on a regular basis). I’m thinking any would work and probably just alter the sweetness a tad. Thanks for asking!!
