~Winter Warmer: Butternut Squash Soup~

I love soup. There are very few soups I've come across that I did not like! I also love winter squash, so what could be better than soup made from winter squash?

For Sunday's dinner, I wanted to do something with a butternut squash I had, and thought of making soup. Many soup recipes for winter squash also call for cream, which I didn't have on hand. I looked through some recipes on RecipeZaar and came across Spiced Squash and Apple Soup. Oh my goodness! It is so delicious! The apple gives it a slight sweetness, and the spices make it taste and smell wonderful!

It is so good, I had it for breakfast this morning! *Grin*

Note: the recipe calls for 2 butternut squashes, to equal five cups. My one butternut squash was six cups, and I used it all.

Thanks! I followed your link and saved the recipe. I will probably make it for dinner sometime soon. Can you suggest something that goes well with it?

Tammy ~ Thanks for the link. I, too, copied and pasted it into my receipe folder. We have plenty of butternut squash to use up!

Heather, we had potatoes and meat for dinner, with the soup on the side (in a small bowl). I think it would go well with many different meals.
