Wow! This was gorgeous! Even my husband loved it - and he's not a fan of things healthy! I cooked this on low in the slow cooker, and used squash we had grown ourselves - not butternut. I also used vegetable stock so that it was a vegetarian soup. My first batch is eaten, or in the freezer, and the second batch is in the slow cooker now. That's lunches sorted for a couple of weeks! - 30 Sep 2013


Thank you Janet for this lovely and simple recipe! I made this yesterday in my slow cooker as per stillhopeful's review and it's a winner, both in flavour and in its simplicity! I have canned two double sized portions and they are stored in the fridge for lunches. We'll definitely be having this again and it has been added to my ever growing list of saved recipes. - 22 Aug 2015
