Warm up with a wonderful bowl of Slow Cooker Chicken & Vegetable Soup paired with Cornbread!  This post is written in partnership with The Produce Gathering, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Slow Cooker Chicken & Vegetable Soup

It’s officially fall here in Oklahoma and my favorite season, that means lots of outdoor activities, hoodies, and fall foods including delicious soup.  I love a good bowl of soup paired with sweet cornbread.

The fall always reminds me of my college days and this little restaurant near campus that served the best soup EVER.  I would try to make it a point on cold days to stop in there for a little bowl of soup with a grilled cheese sandwich.  It always seemed to make the day perfect.  The campus itself was so beautiful in the fall too that it made those long walks across the campus so much more bearable.

As I looked over my produce this past week from The Produce Gathering, I decided to make a delicious soup.  This soup pairs the flavor of butternut squash with a little bit of onion, tomatoes, celery, and chicken.  Now, just make sure you realize though this soup is not salty at all.  My husband loves salty and I just don’t, so I like to leave the salt for last and salt to taste.  That seems to be the best compromise for us, then I can enjoy it without the salt.  I think when this is paired with sweet cornbread the flavor is perfect because it isn’t overpowering, it’s very light.  I also love how tender the butternut squash is when it has been slow cooking all day.  This is a soup that I like to prepare the night before, then as I’m heading out in the morning I can turn on the slow cooker and let it cook all day.

    You had me at … soup. I love soup! I can have it for any meal, any day, and season. It could be 90 degrees outside and I still would be tempted to have a bowl of soup if it was around. I need to make soup from my slow cooker more often. This recipe looks delish and simple to make.

    I just love slow-cooker recipes! It’s so nice to be able to dump everything in a pot and go about your day and come home to a delicious home cooked meal! And soup is a favorite in the fall and winter. Yum!

    I’m pretty excited that it’s farmers market season again, but you are going to make me try Produce Gathering to see what it is like. I always enjoy having fresh veggies for soups, salads, and snacks.
