Butternut Squash and Ginger Sage Soup

February 19, 2015

Our favorite thing about this soup is that it requires very little fussing about. Really, squash soup packs such a wallop of flavor and satisfaction for the amount of effort you put into it. One spoonful of this velvety concoction usually results in swoons of “oohs and aahs” from the hungry guests at your table.

Silky, creamy, sweet and slightly savory. Always rustic. And totally healthy. Packed with vitamins A, C and K – fiber, potassium and low in fat. And this recipe is SO easy! You can literally be enjoying soup in under 30 minutes – boom, it’s there. Get my recipe and make it this weekend!
