Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

butternutsquashsoup

This fall soup is a winner. After having a ton of rich foods for Thanksgiving we need this simple soup to detox and to use all the Turkey stock we made from Thanksgiving Day. This soup is rich with roasted flavors and a delightful sweetness from the apple finished with some crunch from toasted pumpkin seeds. A wonderful soul filling soup; it will surely be a staple in your winter cooking!

From our kitchen to yours, Bennett
