clueless crockpot cooking

I had such great success with my recipe two weeks ago from How It All Vegan that I decided to make another crock pot of soup from its pages.

SWEET POTATO, SQUASH AND APPLE SOUP

1 medium onion, chopped
1 T olive oil
2 cups vegetable stock
2 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced
2 cups sweet potatoes peeled and diced
3 medium apples, cored and diced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Break out the crock pot and plug it in. Pour in the oil and onions and turn to high. Sit down and start reading a book. Ignore the crock pot until the entire apartment reeks of onions. Then go turn it down to low. Add the stock, squash, potatoes, apples, and spices. Simmer until its all soft and squishy and mixed together and smells delicious. In the cookbook, it recommends pureeing 3 ladles of soup in a blender and then pouring back in the pot. I didn't, though. I just mixed it all together and the veggies all kind of fell apart and became squishy yummy on their own.

Two weeks ago, I made a suggestion to die hard meat eaters if they wanted to add some to the soup. Not this week. Adding anything to this soup would be a sacrilege! It's perfect the way it is!

Go make some.
