Today is definitely a crockpot soup day. Chilly and rainy. Ewww. It’s the one downside of autumn
So, I think I’m going to remake a pot of this today to keep me warm as I study for the delightful midterms that are (already!) descending upon me.
Crock-Pot Apple, Butternut, and Kielbasa Soup
3 apples, peeled and chopped
1 butternut squash, chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
pepper, to taste
1 lb kielbasa
4 cups fresh spinach
Place apples, butternut squash, onion, broth, water, thyme, salt, pepper flakes, and pepper in a crock pot. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Turn off slow cooker and blend with an immersion blender until smooth. Add in kielbasa and spinach, turn crock pot back to low, and continue to let cook for at least 1 more hour. Adjust taste with salt and pepper and serve.
