Default Re: Really Hearty Slow Cooker Soups

Pacific Organic Creamy Butternut Squash Soup, 4 cartons
4 large onions, chopped.
1 whole head of garlic, chopped or minced
olive oil
chicken breast, cooked and diced (optional, you could use any leftover protein)

I sauteed the onions and garlic in olive oil until tender, then added everything else. My kids each ate 2 bowls, even my picky toddler. And they requested this be added to our winter menu rotation.

I served it with homemade rye rolls (75% rye, 25% all-purpose flour). So good on a chilly winter night.
I make a similar soup, only I replace half of that butternut soup with chicken broth, and I add a can of chickpeas, some sliced carrots, and a cup of quinoa. Sometimes I add chunks of butternut squash as well. Very hearty and everyone loves it.
