Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup

 

Coming from Chinese-American decent, I never really paid attention to other types of soup beyond Oriental Cuisine and I had no idea all of the deliciousness that I was missing out on! I first discovered Butternut Squash Soup while on the elimination phase of the Autoimmune Protocol and  O.M.G. it has changed my entire world! This is one of the easiest, delicious and nourishing meals I have ever made.

So, why do I love this recipe so much? because butternut squash is a low-starch vegetable, easy to digest and extremely versatile to cook with. During my gut-healing protocol, I found myself making this beautiful dish time-and-time again. Plus, it freezes so make an extra batch in advance and you’re set for weekly meals, travelling or serve as an appetizer at a dinner party.

P.S. this is one of my favorite breakfast entrees also!
