Butternut Squash Soup

This fall favorite butternut squash soup recipe was originally shared four years ago. It’s such a delicious, classic soup, I wanted to bring it back. Even if you’re not a big fan of squash, you might like this creamy soup.

I have found that butternut squash soup is one of my favorite soups.  You can add things to it like the apple and potato found in this recipe or just keep it simple.  You can also try different herbs and seasoning.  Butternut squash has such a pleasant flavor and blends up so nicely, that I seem to enjoy it no matter what I add or don’t add to the soup.
