Winter Squash Soup

Full of flavor and packed with vitamins and fiber, this butternut squash soup is comforting and healthy! It's great to warm up on cool days and can be frozen for up to a few months. Top with pumpkin seeds or herbs, a decadent swirl of cream, and serve with a crusty roll!

Total time
