It’s fall ya’ll. And one of the things that I enjoy about this time of year is enjoying a nice warm bowl of soup. One of my favorites is this spicy butternut squash soup. But, unfortunately, I’ve found many butternut squash soup recipes have ingredients I just don’t want to mess with. This spiced butternut squash soup recipe is vegan, gluten and dairy free. It’s filled with healthy spices and ingredients that will boost immunity and get your blood flowing.

Butternut squash soup is the kind of soup that scents up whole house and makes it smell like fall with just a few simple ingredients. Lots of people complain that healthy cooking is not affordable but during fall you can but a butternut squash for between 99 cents and 1.99 a pound and feed a family of four.

Also, in this recipe note that I use my favorite high powered blender.

It has a soup setting and generates so much heat that I don’t even have to heat the liquids up. From fridge to blender, the juice used in this recipe doesn’t even have to be heated up first.

    Yummm!! Cannot wait to try! My brother-in-law makes a similar soup (but not as spicy) and adds an apple, celery, and cranberry relish on top. I love that relish! I wonder if it would go with this soup, too?!?!

      Sounds like that would make a tasty combo. Enjoy!
