Creamy Butternut Squash and Potato Soup is savory and delicious! Although I love this soup all winter long, it is perfect for Thanksgiving as well.
First, I made this soup in the crockpot, so you literally put five ingredients in the crock pot, and let it cook while you prepare the rest of your dinner. Butternut squash is very sweet, but combining baking potatoes, onions and shallots, makes the sweet turn savory.
Since the whole soup brews in the crockpot, you can start it in the morning, and not worry about it until a few minutes before you serve dinner. Or, you can make it ahead and keep it warm while you prepare the rest of the meal.
In order to make it fancy, you need some pistachios, fresh sage and some cashew cream. Again, the process is simple with very few ingredients.
If you are interested in an inexpensive and easy soup that tastes like it came from a 5 star restaurant, give this soup a try.
