Ingredients

Goat Cheese Croutons

Instructions

  • Peel and cut butternut squash into manageable chunks. Be sure to remove the seeds.
  • Add butternut squash and vegetable broth to crockpot and cook on high for 6 hours.
  • After 6 hours, remove the lid and puree with immersion blender or transfer to high speed blender and blend until smooth (you may need to do this in batches)
  • Add cinnamon and salt to the soup and stir to combine.
  • About 30 minutes before the soup is ready, preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Cut the goat cheese into 8-10 coins and refridgerate for 10 minutes. You may need to mold the cheese back into a coin shape if it falls apart. This can be done the night before or early in the morning as well.
  • Right before you put these in the oven, add 2 egg whites to a bowl and whisk to combine them.
  • In a separate bowl, add the almond meal (flour), garlic powder and salt. Mix to combine.
  • Add the goat cheese coins to the egg whites then transfer them to the almond meal. Be sure to coat well to cover. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
  • Once all the goat cheese coins are covered, place them in the oven for 12-13 minutes.
  • Remove and serve over butternut squash soup!
  • Cook time reflects the time in the slow cooker!
  • For dairy free use 2 tbs of Kite Hill Cream Cheese Spread instead of Goat Cheese
