Squash, Sweet Potato, Carrot, and White Bean Soup

Butternut Squash Soup Made Even Better

Driving home form work, it's pitch black (thanks to Daylight Saving!), you're exhausted from a long day, and all you want is to sit down to a relaxing, hot meal. Consider your wish granted! It takes just 10 minutes of prep in the morning — throw all the ingredients in your slow cooker and dinner will be ready and waiting.

This twist on the always-loved butternut squash soup recipe includes sweet potatoes and carrots for extra fiber and vitamin A, as well as white cannellini beans not only to boost protein but also to add creaminess without a drop of dairy. You can enjoy this soup as is when you arrive home, or puree it with an immersion blender for a few minutes for an even smoother texture.
