Nothing quite warms the soul like a bowl of good, hot soup. One of my all time favorites, especially this time of year, is roasted butternut squash soup. The thick, silky smooth texture is delicate on the tongue while the hearty flavors of roasted butternut squash and coconut milk give a big, robust flavor that leaves you feeling satisfied. This super is pretty simple to make because the oven does all the work. Put that butternut squash in and see the flavors come alive as it is roasted. Top it with fresh pepitas or roasted pumpkin seeds (we like Superseedz brand). Serve it with some gluten-free crackers and you are set. Happy fall y’all!
