Freezer to Crockpot Soup

I love both apples and sweet potatoes so when my girlfriend offered this Freezer to Crockpot Soup recipe as part of our meal swap. I was delighted. We have previously hosted a soup swap together.

Freezer to Crockpot Soup: Sweet Potato and Apple Soup Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 4 red gala apples, 2 will be peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes and two will be cut length wise as a garnish to reheat in the soup.
  • 2 cups low-sodium gluten-free chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 – 3 dashes of nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp of fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground black pepper

sweet potato soup

Directions:

I would suggest using a blender. I love my Blendtec you can see my Blentec Review.

You need to cook  the onions in the  heated pan of olive oil. I would then place the remaining ingredients in the pan to cook. Once you have completed that I would place them in the food processor or mixer of your choice and blend until the texture is like baby food fine with minimal chunks.

Once your soup has cooled you can place it in freezer bags frozen flat.

I simply placed my frozen soup in my micro wave to defrost to the point that I could place it in my crockpot. I placed my crockpot on warm until I was ready to devour this soup. We served the soup with the two apples on the top so it had some crunch to it. We paired it with grill cheese. I was super!

Squash Soup Recipe

Squash Soup Recipe

Squash Soup

I had been drinking a v8 each day but then in an effort to drink and eat less processed items I decided to use more local fresh vegetables. I have tried juicing but have not found many recipes that I like with ingredients that I can easily obtain. There are certain vegetables that seem to produce prolifically around here. One is squash. It also gets really big quickly so if you miss one under the large leaves you may end up with a very large tough squash. This Squash Soup recipe was created to use ALOT of squash, including some of those large tough ones as well as a quick source of many servings of vegetables. When looking around the kitchen I saw lots of squash, some new onion bulbs and a bell pepper…thus into the pot they went!

As I have served this for company, church members, family and friends, I have been shocked at how MANY people love this recipe. It is very simple and can be served with quite a bit of diversity by simply having bowls of various cheeses on the table.
