I love soup – especially when it’s cold outside. This easy butternut squash soup is one of the easiest ways to ensure that I get enough veggies throughout the winter months (because raw veggies and salads aren’t very appealing in – 20 C weather).
Soup is also a great way to bring in some warmth and comfort to colder days, while also being nutritious and satiating. I know for me personally, I tend to eat more raw veggies in the summer months because they’re a little more accessible and at peak freshness. So what I love about this butternut squash soup is that it’s an easy (and tasty!) way to get a few more nutrient-packed veggies in my day.
As a busy Mom, I also find that making big batches of soup (whether it’s an all-in-one meal soup or a veggie soup) is an easy way to ensure that my family eats a balanced, healthy meal and also provides as easy option on busy nights.
This velvety butternut squash soup is so delicious- you’ll want to make a big batch! We usually pair it with grilled chicken thighs and a salad, but it would be perfect with a panini or grilled cheese sandwich too.
