Butternut Squash Soup

Beth Streeter


This is one of my family favorites, so easy and quick. My 14 and 15 year old love it. The onion adds a depth of flavor that we all love! My daughter tops with pepper, my son loves the pumpkin seeds. The best thing about it is that it feels rich and creamy but it's good for you!
