It’s easy to ignore your slow cooker in the summer… hot foods sound less than appealing, and you’re too busy doing all of the fun summer things to give dinner much thought. But now that sweater weather is approaching and you’re taking a pause on vacation days till winter, it’s time to break out the Crock-Pot recipes again.
You get to put minimal effort into cooking dinner, and you’ll likely have leftovers (the OG meal prep). Best of all, these healthy fall slow-cooker recipes are filled with pumpkin, cinnamon, apples, and sage, so you’re pretty much guaranteed a flavorful, delicious-smelling meal.
This soup goes heavy on the fall ingredients (sage, cinnamon, and squash) and we’re so happy about it. A Granny Smith apple makes it just a little tart, and you can control the spice factor by serving the cayenne pepper on top. Plus, it uses coconut milk, so it works for vegan or nondairy diets.
