BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

Updated: Jan 8, 2021



I am not very fan of pumpkin, but I’ve been loving this warm butternut squash soup lately. I can have it any time of the day any day. The bright yellow color of this bowl full of butternut squash soup always reminds me of Fall. And the aroma is really uffff heavenly. This soup doesn't just taste great, it is actually healthier for us, too. Squash is naturally rich in minerals and nutrients. it’s creamy and nourishing and perfect for a satisfying cozy cold afternoon lunch or a cozy fall evening dinner.
