Butternut Squash Soup

Do you have the sniffles from the cold weather? Unfortunately I got stuck with the snuffles, sore throat and a bit of a cough all weekend. When I am sick I love drinking soups mainly because when I was a child and my mother or grandmother would take care of me, they would always make me soup to help me feel better. I remember always asking my Nonna (Italian for ‘grandmother’) to make me some soup when I wasn’t feeling well. However she spoke zero English so in our dialect from Naples Italy soup is translated to “Pastina“. There you go! Quick Italian lesson for ya! Anyways, my point is everyone loves a good bowl of soup when they are feeling under the weather or to just warm up on a cold day.

This butternut squash soup is my favourite soup recipe that my dad makes. It is soooo delicious! I remember growing up, I was never much of a fan of it. I guess it is of an acquired taste and most children just like chicken noodle soup anyways 😛  . It is definitely a fall time dish, but I like to enjoy this soup all year around. It is a super simple recipe to make and does not require a lot of ingredients. I love adding cinnamon to the soup, most people don’t like to but I added this one in my batch this time around. I love eating this soup with my favourite pumpkin & cranberry organic crackers. The pumpkin and cranberry flavours compliment the butternut squash so well! It’s so delicious!
