This spicy butternut squash soup is very filling. It is easy to make and goes well with pieces of fried bacon or roasted pumpkin seeds as garnish.
I always recommend using organic ingredients but if you don’t have any use what you have!
when using non-organic butternut squash always remove the skin
When using non-organic butternut squash, I highly recommend avoiding eating the skin. It often contains most of the pesticide. Try to scoop out the flesh and discard the skin after roasting the butternut squash.
Otherwise with organic butternut squash you can just blend the whole thing with the skin on, you will add more vitamins to your meal plus it will save you a bit of work.
This spicy soup is fantastic autumn warming and grounding meal. Butternut squash is great source of fiber, vitamin A and just 1/2 cup of butternut squash offers nearly half of your daily requirement for vitamin C.
Butternut squash is technically a fruit and it grows above the ground. Despite all that it is considered to be a grounding vegetable like all the squashes and pumpkins.
Sprinkle some roasted pumpkin seeds over it, or alternatively try some fried bacon to add extra crunch.
This soup is definitely one of the easiest soup to make. Even despite the longer time it takes to roast the squash it actually takes very little time to prepare. All you need to do is to cut, de-seed and season the squash, place it in the oven. Blend it with hot stock and the seasoning when its roasted.
