Slow Cooker Butternut Squash

From the blog "Cook Eat Paleo". I've done this with potatoes, sweet potatoes and beets, but never thought of squash - it's so much bigger, but I'm thinking anything that fits in the slow cooker can be done this way. The water is there just because you need two ingredients to post a recipe!

Ready In:
5hrs 5mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 whole butternut squash, washed
  • 12 cup water

directions

  • Place squash in your crockpot. Pour the water back into the tea kettle or on whatever houseplant could use it - don't add it to the crockpot.
  • Cook on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours, or on LOW for 6 to 8 hours, or until it's soft and can be easily pierced. The exact time will depend on just how large the squash it.
  • Cut in half, scrape out the seeds and scoop out the cooked squash, use as desired.
