Slow Cooker Healthy Fall Soup uses harvest fall vegetables (and a fruit) for a creamy, delicious and healthy soup
 

This is one of my favorite soups for fall and winter. It is filled with all my favorite fall harvest vegetables. This recipe makes quite a lot of soup, an entire slow cooker full in fact. You’ll need to be sure to use at least a 5 quart slow cooker for this recipe. This soup freezes incredibly well and we can get several meals out of one batch. You can keep this soup completely clean, healthy, and low calorie by skipping on the cream, but I find the cream adds a nice body and texture to the soup. Even with the cream, you are looking at way less than 100 calories per cup of soup. Healthy soups can taste amazing too!

I actually liked this recipe better before it was puréed. But I love chunky!

I have a surplus of winter squash this year! This looks like a great way to use some!

I sure love my slow cooker this time of year… I have chili plans for tomorrow, but I pinned this one to try soon!
