Butternut Squash Soup

Wintery Butternut Squash Soup

This soup is absolutely PERFECT during the wintery/cold days. Add some delicious croutons, some crème fraiche, or top with some toasted pumpkin seeds to make this dish pop! This dish is like magic, you immediately get the sweetness from the sugar and cinnamon, and then it transforms into the savory dish with the garlic, salt, and pepper coming through at the end. Grab a blanket and a bowl of this soup and prepare for a warm and toasty night in!
