The Perfect Beginning to Fall: Golden Butternut Squash Soup

Published on
By : dLife Editors

Butternut squash is a winter squash with a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin.

It has a golden-yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp with a compartment of seeds at the bottom. When ripe, it turns increasingly deep orange and becomes sweeter and richer.

Butternut squash is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium; and it is a source of vitamin A.

Best of all, it can be made into a hearty, naturally, creamy soup that packed with tons of flavor and perfect for the beginning of fall.
