Butternut Squash Soup

paleo, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free

The creamiest squash soup, full of delicious flavor and nutrients!

This soup has so much natural yumminess, I can't even express it in words...you're just have to experience to understand! I have added extremely minimal flavors into this soup and the bulk of the taste comes from the squash itself (which I love!).

This recipe is especially great for Fall and Winter. The coziness of warm soup mixed with the squash flavor makes for a great holiday-time meal. 

Another benefit to this soup is its' nutrients! Based on my research, butternut squash is an excellent source of vitamin C, magnesium, vitamin A, potassium, and manganese. If you're interested in how those vitamins and minerals affect the body, I encourage you to do a little research or talk to your doctor about it!!

You can add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top if you want to get fancy with it :)
