I love to change up my recipes and re-invent new ways of healing my body and soul (with food). I’ve had this butternut squash recipe as my regular ‘go to’ recipe forever and I wanted to to bring in another to change it up. Not because it isn’t my number one recipe of all time anymore, it is just to have a bit more variety in my life and this new version is very, VERY quick to make.

For this recipe, you put the cut up squash pieces in the soup pot and boil the ingredients together in the veggie stock, as opposed to roasting the squash in the oven.

I love the carrots and potato in this new recipe too as is makes it a smoother soup and a better depth of flavours.

It’s simple. It’s easy.
