My slow cooker is like a best friend that always helps me out. Whether it’s a dinner party, a weekday meal or food for a crowd it’s reliable and creates delicious meals with little effort. While I love a slow simmering soup on the stove this soup takes out all of the prep work and cooks the whole meal in one pot. While I have used olive oil to saute in the past I loved the change in flavour by cooking the onions in coconut oil. The delicious coconut flavour is sealed into the onions and spices and adds the perfect sweetness to the dish. Plus with the addition of coconut milk this Slow Cooker Butternut Squash and Apple Soup is creamy, delicious and lactose free. You can find the coconut products featured in this recipe at your grocery store often located with the international food selection.
