Next up is the Fall stuff, for you I have a soup and another quick snack, I'll share my snack idea first, since it is also a quickie as well :)
Ok... on to the big dog :) This soup is PERFECT for that lazy Fall Sunday, when you want to relax and enjoy some football on TV and a nice warm bowl of soup. This Butternut Squash, Green Apple soup is a winner!
WHAT YOU NEED:
4 cups of precut butter nut squash pieces (I bought a whole butternut squash and cut it myself into chunks)
3 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced
4 cubes chicken bouillon
4 cups water (or substitute 4 cups low sodium chicken stock for water and bouillon)
Salt and pepper to taste
WHAT YOU DO:
Place butternut squash, sliced apple, chicken stock, and spices into slow cooker. Cook on low heat for 6 - 8 hours. Cool. Puree in a blender. (for chunkier souop, use potato masher instead of blender, this is what I did!) Return soup to slow cooker to keep warm. Serve with garlic parm toast and small mixed green salad.... YUM!
Sooo good. And even better days later! This recipe made A LOT of soup, so it's PERFECT for a few days meals. So, the time you put in to make this, def pays off for quick meals later in the week ;) Not to mention the nutritional value... DANG! Only 145 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving.... LOVE IT! ENJOY :)
