My mom made butternut squash soup all the time when I was a teenager. At the time I didn’t totally appreciate it. It seemed too healthy! But now I definitely appreciate how creamy, healthy, savory, and satisfying a good butternut squash soup can be on a crisp Fall day!
Because it is so light, it is a great accompaniment to a hearty salad, cheese bread, or grilled meat. My husband and I made this a few nights ago and paired it with some juicy steak. We both couldn’t get enough, which is really saying something since my husband can be a pick eater. I was afraid he, like me at 16, would think it was just too healthy so there is no way it could be good. But he pretty much licked his bowl clean! I will take that as a vote of confidence in this recipe!
