Warming Spicy & Sweet Butternut Squash Soup

To quick start this winter and new year, what’s better than a delicious butternut squash recipe? Right?!?

I had this butternut squash laying around in the kitchen for quite some time now and finally decided to make something out of it.

So obviously, soup!!!

Soups are one of my favorite meals for cold weather. It’s an awesome way to get your daily veggies in, it’s healing and comforting!!

 

I love making soup for weeknight meals, they are meal-prep friendly, you can almost use whatever you have on hand, and you only need a one pot!!  It’s a win-win.

I’ve been experimenting with different soup recipes the past few weeks. I am still amazed at how it’s such a diverse meal that need such little effort.

Warming Spicy & Sweet Butternut Squash Soup

This spicy and sweet butternut squash soup is made out of quite a lot of healthy ingredients to boost your immune system and get you through winter the healthy way.

With the addition of ginger, turmeric, and garlic, traditionally used to treat colds coughs and indigestions, this soup becomes a pretty hefty cold fighting support.

Make sure you use organic products to get all the health benefit from this soup. I would highly recommend using iHerb if you shop for organic products online! Their prices are very attractive and they ship almost worldwide.

The mix of butternut squash, carrot, habanero peppers, turmeric, and garlic gives this soup a delicious mild quick of spicy flavors and a sweet undertone.

The ideal winter weeknight dinner or even lunch!

I love how velvety and smooth the soup taste without any added cream,  nuts or tofu.
