Warm, spiced and incredibly nutritious, my mom's butternut squash soup appears regularly in the fall and winter as a cozy dinner option.
I really didn’t have to doctor my mom’s recipe to make it healthy as it's already delicious, easy and full of nutrients.
You can usually tell the nutrient denseness of a fruit or vegetable by its color. The deep orange of butternut squash indicates that it is full of heart-protecting carotenoids, especially beta carotene.
It’s packed with immune system boosting Vitamin C and B6, as well as potassium, fiber, and tons of antioxidants.
