Sweet carrots and pumkin are the perfect duo in this warm and savory soup. The sweet and earthy root vegetables are accented with leeks, onion, and garlic for a truly flavor-packed bowl of soup.

This soup is yummy while also healthy. I do like this way of cooking, but I have also found an optional way to make it keeping the flavor but saving time. Cut the butternut squash into quarters, remove the stem and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Then cube the quarters and smash them up with butter. Chop up the rest of the vegetables. Add all the ingredients listed in the recipe to a crock pot and throw in a cup of water. I leave it to slow cook all day while I work. When I get home, dinner is served.
