We have had a few requests recently for some vegetarian dishes made in the crock-pot so we are going to see what we can come up with! While none of us ladies are vegetarian we are always willing to give it a try. Going meatless one day a week is not that hard. I grew up vegetarian as a small child and so I don’t think it is too hard to find some great meatless dishes and introduce them to my kids. Today’s Meatless Monday recipe is for an acorn squash soup. Very easy to prepare and while my children balked at the bowl of soup put before them (honestly it sort of looked like baby food) I bribed them with Halloween candy encouraged them to just give it a try. And so they did, and so they actually liked the soup. I served it with a crusty load of french bread and they liked using the soup as a dip for their bread. That works for this mom! This soup is full of fiber, low in fat (well practically zero fat really) and is quite tasty. [highlight color=”eg. red, white”]Tip[/highlight] – Cutting an acorn squash is difficult.
