When the leaves are changing and the air is crisp, creamy butternut squash soup is just necessary.
And there are plenty of ways to mix it up so you can eat it over and over (naturally) without getting bored.
Some people add bacon; apple is also a popular addition.
We add broccoli rabe to ours, for added nutrients and fresh veggie flavor.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
This recipe takes a healthy winter favorite up a few notches in terms of both nutrition and flavor. Broccoli rabe provides fiber and essential nutrients like vitamins A, C, K, and iron, plus zinc to strengthen the immune system. And the squash, cayenne pepper, ginger, and garlic are filled with antioxidants to shore up the body’s defenses against the damaging effects of free radicals. Did we mention the soup is gluten-free, with no added sugar? This is comfort food at it’s best.
