There is nothing quite as delicious as a warm bowl of soup on a cold day. The only thing that makes it more delicious is when it comes together in 30 minutes or less!!!
Today's recipe is a nutrient-dense, quick and easy soup recipe, that is sure to hit the spot as winter intensifies for many of us. Bonus- it also makes great leftovers!
Butternut squash is a hearty fall vegetable that is packed full of vitamins, most notably vitamins A, C, E, and B as well as several essential minerals. Because it is slightly sweet it the perfect comfort-food dish, and can be topped with either savory or sweeter toppings! (Think a savory herb blend vs cinnamon)
And, if you like to cycle-sync your foods, then this recipe is the perfect nourishing and grounding meal for the menstrual phase of your cycle! (Don't know what cycle phases are? I have a quick tutorial in this post.)
