Butternut Squash Lentil Soup Recipe For Slow Cooker

Low Calorie, Low Maintenance, High Protein: Butternut Squash Lentil Soup

Slow cookers aren't just for beef chili and pulled pork! Vegetarians can reap the benefits of these one-pot wonders too. This soup recipe is such a cinch to whip up — just throw all the ingredients in your slow cooker before work and dinner is done. Since the lentils and squash get cooked for so long, they soften completely to reveal a smooth, creamy consistency that will warm you up on a chilly Winter's day. And for 250 calories per serving, each bowl also offers an amazing 17 grams of fiber and 18.3 grams of protein!

This recipe makes eight hearty servings, so you can feed your family and still have leftovers — either to enjoy for lunch or to freeze for another day.
