Butternut squash is in season and soup is a great way to take advantage of this super healthy vegetable. A type of winter squash, butternut squash is rich in fiber and is an excellent source of vitamin A and E. I added some carrots and potatoes pureed in a blender making this soup very creamy with a beautiful orange hue. It’s a perfect dish to ring in the autumn season and to keep you warm on a chilly night!
This recipe is one of my all-time favorite soups to cook because it’s delicious and comforting. It’s also super easy! I’ve been home sick for a few days and wanted something simple to make and this soup always hits the spot.
One of my favorite staples I have in the kitchen is lentils and I usually rely on a lentil dish if I’m not sure what to cook for dinner. Besides being very healthy, lentils are really versatile and can be served at any temperature, whether it’s a hot soup or a cold salad. This time I made a simple, hearty stew-like dish to ring in the fall season.
