Creamy Delicious Butternut Squash & Apple Soup
Guys, I'm super excited about today's post: another recipe!
Another easy, delicious recipe and perfect for a blistery cold day! I figured I better go ahead and share it with you guys before spring when we're all back to barbecuing and eating fruit salads! Wanna get in one last comforting winter soup? This butternut squash and apple soup will not disappoint you!
Like I say with most all Fit for a Bride recipes: this is SO EASY to make! It's just four ingredients and they're all easy to find in the grocery store- apples, butternut squash, a single onion, and vegetable broth. With that, two of my favorite spices, which most of us already have at home: nutmeg and cinnamon! That's it folks!
On a side note, how amazing are these photos shot by Lauren of Ella Mae Studios? I'm seriously craving some soup right now! Lauren, you are the best!
I got this recipe through word of mouth so the directions are very simple, but here's the thing: you can't mess this up! Keep in mind, you can spruce it up a little! If you want, consider adding a little carrot and celery (in with your onion) for more of a hearty, vegetable taste, but that's totally optional! You won't know anything is missing in this verison! I promise!
One tip: if you can't find pre-sliced butternut squash at your local grocer, and you have to buy it whole, check out this article from the Kitchn on How to Peel and Cube a Butternut Squash! It helped me a ton! (I seriously how no clue what I was doing the first time I cooked with it and ended up cooking the skin in with the stew I made, because I didn't know I was supposed to peel it! THIS IS WHY US NEWLYWEDS NEED A BLOG LIKE THIS :) Eeks! Good thing my hubby didn't know any better!
There's not much else to say except enjoy!
