This butternut squash soup is served for lunch for February’s meal plan! The meal plan features one of my favorite winter vegetables, butternut squash and my husband’s favorite way to eat it…SOUP! I have never been a big soup person, but I have to admit after taking it to work for lunch all week, I might have become a soup person. Not to mention that we only recently received a pot big enough for soup for rom our wedding registry (scroll down to see my favorite copper pots :)) This butternut squash soup is perfect for those of you who have freezing cold offices and need to warm up mid day as well as for those of you who need a break for a lunch salad! This butternut squash has the perfect flavor profile because all the sweetness of the butternut squash is complemented with a tart green apple.
