Crockpot Spaghetti Squash Soup

Gluten Free Living – 2017

Crockpot Spaghetti Squash Soup is mouthwatering. If you’ve never tried spaghetti squash in soup before, you don’t know what you’re missing. It works wonderfully in soups as well as casseroles. This is basically a vegetable soup recipe loaded with veggies, but I also included spaghetti squash, cannellini beans and some leftover homemade turkey broth that I was trying to use up back in early December.

The first time I tried making a soup with spaghetti squash was about eight years ago after I had gum grafts done. I wasn’t able to eat any salad for raw veggies for a couple of months so I got my nutrients mostly through soups. It was really the first time in my life I’d ever eaten soups on a regular basis, much less cooked them! I find soups amazing comfort food these days but rarely ate them before then.

Crockpot Spaghetti Squash Soup turned out really well. If you haven’t noticed, I love thyme in anything but especially in soups, casseroles and veggie dishes. It enhances almost any dish. I also used Italian seasoning, rosemary, parsley and chives and those seasonings really brought out the flavors too. This soup is healthy, low calorie, clean eating, gluten free and you can easily make it vegan by using regular vegetable broth. I will say though, that the rich, turkey broth I used made it especially delectable.

A friend of mine is on a very restricted diet for another month and a half to try to get her digestive issues taken care of. I gave her a large tupperware bowl of this soup after we’d already had several servings. She loved the soup and really was intrigued by the idea of using spaghetti squash in soup. As I said before, making a batch of this soup is a great, low calorie way to get your year started right!

If you’re looking for a way to lose weight after the indulgence of the holidays try this soup. Or if you just want to use up a lot of fresh veggies, Crockpot Spaghetti Squash Soup is a path to accomplishing both!

I used these ingredients. The spaghetti squash is already cooked and the bowl contains a rich, homemade turkey broth from cooking off our Thanksgiving turkey carcass.

Place turkey broth in a crockpot. (Or you can use chicken or vegetable broth).

Cut cooked spaghetti squash in half. Remove seeds. With the tines of a fork, scoop out all of the spaghetti squash all the way to the shell. Add to crockpot.

Heat through about 30 minutes. (I ended up transferring my ingredients to a larger crockpot because my smaller one wouldn’t contain all of it.)

Garnish with fresh thyme, rosemary, chives or parsley before serving. My favorite is thyme.
