Slow Cooker Cream of Squash Soup

This is a very special garden to table recipe with the fullness of the harvest. We are taking a couple of varieties of squash, colored peppers, and some other flavors added to make this a delicious garden soup. When I come in from the garden with a basket full of vegetables it is always so much fun to see what we can create and today it was cream of squash soup and to save time, it went in the slow cooker. We have loved this recipe and will be making it over and over!

  7. What a delicious soup, Miz Helen. Roasting the squash would add so much flavour. It's so nice to have recipes like this on the go in the slow cooker for the cooler weather. Sharing on the H&S Facebook page later today. Thank you for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Hope to see you again tomorrow. Have a great week ahead!
