Fall is officially here! Time to pull out the sweaters and enjoy delicious comfort foods like soup. I love soup season. My favorite soup is butternut squash soup. This roasted butternut squash and apple soup is delicious, healthy and easy to make.
Soup is a great way to increase your vegetable intake. This soup is perfect from this dietitian’s point of view. Butternut squash is packed with beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant which plays a protective role against certain cancers and heart disease. Furthermore, beta carotene is a precursor to vitamin A, which plays a role in immunity and night vision. Squash is also a good source of fibre, folate, vitamin C and potassium.
I roasted the squash and added carrots, granny smith apples, and spices. Pretty simple ingredients blended until silky smooth to impress your guests. I brought this soup to brunch and it was a hit. Other squash recipes we are loving is this butternut squash mac and cheese.
