Butternut Squash Soup

October 14, 2019Brianna

I had never had butternut squash soup till I started dating my husband. His mom made it the Autumn we were engaged for a family dinner and I remember it being unlike any soup I’d ever eaten. This is her recipe. Most soups are savory but this one has a unique sweetness to it. It’s perfect for a fall dinner when the air is getting crisp outside and you need something to warm you up. Another reason this is a fabulous recipe is that it takes less than half an hour from start to finish (as long as you aren’t super slow at cutting and peeling) For best results, eat while wearing the coziest sweater you own. This recipe pairs wonderfully with my homemade croutons recipe!

This is one of my favorite soups. The little touch of curry makes all the difference.
