Whip up this easy vegetarian recipe for Crock-Pot Acorn Squash Soup and enjoy a bowl of hot healthy soup for Meatless Monday or any day of the week!
Slow Cooker Acorn Squash Soup
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 and is quite tasty. It really hit’s all the spots on the “healthy” meter as far as recipes go!

Equipment Needed For Crock-Pot Acorn Squash Soup Recipe:
- 6 Quart, 6.5 Quart Or 7 Quart Slow Cooker
- Cutting Board
- Measuring Spoons
- Immersion Blender Or Regular Blender
Is The Acorn Squash Peeled Before It Is Cooked?
No, in this recipe you cut the squash in half, remove the seeds and cut the acorn squash into wedges. Cook them in the slow cooker and then peel the squash. I find this method to be the easiest way to remove the skins as they come off easily once the squash is cooked.
Can I Use Chicken Broth Instead Of Vegetable Broth?
If you are not a vegan or vegetarian you can easily swap out chicken broth for the vegetable broth in this recipe.
Can This Acorn Squash Soup Be Frozen?
This soup recipe freezes beautifully. To freeze just pack it away in freezer containers or freezer bags and stash them away in the freezer for up to 6 months. I personally like to freeze this soup in single portion sizes so I can just heat up one serving for a healthy Weight Watchers friendly lunch!
