Butternut Squash Soup (slow cooker)

I found this recipe while searching for slow cooker ideas.

It’s very easy to make (especially if DH does the chopping!) – I usually prep it up the night before & set the timer plug to turn it on first thing in the morning and it’s ready for lunnch.


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 butternut squash (2 lb), peeled, cubed
  • 0.5 litre water
  • 0.5 tsp dried marjoram leaves
  • 0.25 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 4 veg stock cubes
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, cubed


  1. Put all the ingredients, except the cream cheese into the slow cooker
  2. Cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
  3. Blend
  4. Stir in cream cheese.
  5. The original recipe says to cook on low for another 30mins, but as we are usually in a rush we just eat it straight away!
