Autumn is the perfect time to make soup. The air is growing cool and crisp, the leaves are changing colors, and as winter draws closer, we yearn for savory, warm, and filling fare. No doubt you’ve seen the grocery stores full of pumpkins and gourds and squashes, and now is the time to try this simple butternut squash soup recipe that is just bursting with wholesome ingredients and delicious flavor.
There are many varieties of butternut squash soup, but this recipe has a rich and complex flavor: tart green apple to balance out the sweetness of the squash, a touch of cayenne to give some heat, and a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg to give it that warm and comforting taste of autumn – the taste that just makes you want to eat it while curled up in front of a roaring fire, watching red and gold leaves slowly drifting off the trees outside.
