Despite being a food blogger, I can be real lazy when it comes to dinner time. I’ll throw an assortment of blogging experiments on a plate and call it a day, with nothing entirely going with each other. So more and more I’ve been relying on my slow cooker to cook a well-rounded dinner, because it’s just so easy.

Throw a bunch of yummy stuff in, let it cook all day while I work, and have a meal magically appear before us when dinner time rolls around. This Slow Cooker Vegan Butternut Squash Soup is the epitome of that, filled with fresh veggies and seasonings (and less ingredients mean less prep!)

How to make easy butternut squash soup

And did I mention that making this soup is easy? Because it’s so easy. Cutting the butternut is probably the most time intensive part. Then just throw the diced butternut in your slow cooker along with a granny smith apple, which brings the perfect amount of sweet zinginess, onion, garlic, thyme, and seasonings.

Cook it on high in as little as 2 hours, or let it simmer on low heat for 6 to 8 while you’re at work. Then just blend, add creamy coconut milk, and serve! I love to serve mine topped with roasted chickpeas or crispy Brussels sprouts (if I’m feeling fancy).
