Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup turned out fantastic! SO good for you and so easy to make: I just roasted 3 medium-sized butternut squash for an hour – (I roast squash and pumpkins whole) – and then cooked the squash in butter with 1 1/2 boxes of vegetable broth and some freshly ground black pepper, pink Himalayan sea salt, nutmeg and cardamom (to taste); and some herbes de Provence.

After cooking the squash and broth for about 45 minutes, I took the soup off heat and let it cook down a bit before pulsing it in batches in the blender.

Butternut squash is so nutritious! It is loaded with potassium, vitamins B6 and C; iron, magnesium and calcium.

A cup of this soup is perfect for holding them over while the turkey roasts!
