Butternut Squash Soup
Tis the soup season! I am a HUGE soup lover, it is the perfect meal for warming both the body and soul on a chilly fall night. It is also a great way to load up on veggies and get some meal prep done (you can make large batches and freeze for future meals).
This tasty butternut squash soup is vegan, filled with nutrients, and it's freezer friendly.
It is also filled with vitamin A, vitamin C, fibre, potassium, and other important nutrients and minerals. Enjoy this on a cold fall evening with a small piece of warm and crusty bread.
(side note: I topped my soup with some parmesan cheese)
