A delicious soup packed with vitamins

Simple, healthy and delicious, butternut squash soup is a classic dish to make during the fall and winter seasons. Over the years I've been making variations, adding twists and tweaks with different herbs or other vegetables. For this butternut squash soup recipe I blended squash with carrots and potatoes for even more flavor and creaminess. This healthy soup is an excellent source of vitamins A and E and is rich in fiber.
