Butternut Squash and Parsnip Soup


Yay!  Another slow cooker recipe – oh, and it’s a GOOD one!  You will love this stuff!  On top of that, it is so ridiculously good for you, that I. can’t. even. 🙂

Okay, for starters, this soup contains parsnip.  A parsnip is this awesome root vegetable that has a ton of health benefits, so I love when I come across or come up with a recipe that incorporates them!  Check out some of the health benefits on the following pin!


See?!  Told ya!  And guess what?  That’s just one of the amazing ingredients in this creamy and delicious soup!  So, I mean it when I say it is SO good for you.  It’s also good for your appetite, because it’s quite filling.  You will feel healthy and satisfied after eating this delicious treat!



  • 2 parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 5 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 1 honey crisp apple (any apple variety will do, but I LOVE honey crisp!), cored and chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth (for a vegetarian option, use veggie broth)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp. ground sage
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • Plain greek yogurt


1.) Add all the ingredients to a slow cooker and stir.


2.) Cook on low for 6-7 hours.


3.) In batches, transfer to a blender and blend till smooth.


4.) Split up in bowls.  Top with a dollop of plain greek yogurt, and season with more sea salt and pepper if desired.


SO GOOD!  Enjoy! 🙂
