CROCKPOT ROASTED GARLIC BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP
Unbelievably smooth, creamy, and flavorful, this comforting butternut squash soup makes itself completely in the crockpot and you’ll never believe it’s only 110 calories per bowl!
The return of everything involving soup and a crockpot, guys. In other words…laziness is in full effect today.
As it should always be when it comes to dinner. Oh, wait…that would have to be every single day. Dang it. <<< 😁😁
Croutons on top are totally optional, but at the same time…not really optional. I gotta have croutons on top of my creamy smooth soups at ALL times, just in case you’re wondering.
And really, I’m not even gonna judge you if you just slurp this soup straight from the crockpot.
