Simple and Delicious Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash is one of Fall’s most popular veggies.  Not only is it delicious, but it’s chock full of vitamins A, E and C, as well as potassium and magnesium.   This Farmer’s Market favorite is shaped like a pear, has a bright orange flesh and a sweet, nutty taste.  It’s great roasted and is perfect for making creamy soups.

Here’s a recipe for a simple butternut squash soup that will keep you warm as the temperatures drop.
