This warm cozy bowl of creamy butternut squash soup is everything and perfect to have on a fall crisp day. I personally can eat soup all year round but something about the fall time and a big bowl of soup just soothes the soul.
Soup recipe is adapted from the Simply Swapped Everyday cookbook by Carly Paige of FitLiving Eats. I made a few tweaks by adding green apples & pumpkin spice plus I was out of shallots so a white onion was used instead.
The butternut squash, carrots, onions and apple were roasted then blended with broth and coconut milk. Topped it off with olive oil, cream, pepper and parsley.Print
