Recipe Wednesday: Butternut & Acorn Squash Soup

This recipe is super simple, natural, and yummy.  It's easy to whip up on a weeknight and have over the next few days!  The cold weather can bring on a lot of comfort food, and while we all love mac & cheese and mashed potatoes, sometimes we need a nice clean meal to balance it all out.

Butternut squash is great for your immune system & is loaded with antioxidants...this is the worst time of year to catch a cold, so use the food you eat as a natural defense!


+ 1 quart veggie broth
[I love Trader Joe's] 

+ 1 butternut squash 

+ 1 acorn squash 

+ 1 yellow onion

+ Fresh ground pepper

+ Cinnamon 

+ Olive oil


+ Slice up the squash and roast for 45 minutes on 300 degrees

+ Saute the onions in olive oil for about 10 minutes on low heat

+ When the squash is finished roasting you want to put the slices into a blender, and then add veggie broth.  Don't overload the blender!  I think I had about 3 rounds of squash/ broth blending.

+ Heat up with the onions, add in as much fresh ground pepper and cinnamon as you like!
