Butternut Squash Soup

Free of: Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Soy, Corn

I had a hunkering today for butternut squash soup.  I haven't had it since I lived in Belgium.  When I had it there, there paired the butternut with apples and a nice gnosh of fresh creme.  It was heavenly. I went on the hunt for a recipe that had good reviews and found one at the Food Network website.  I really liked the recipe.  It wasn't exactly like I remembered it, mainly because of the lack of cream (dairy allergies), but it was yummy none the less.  I like to eat it hot and sprinkle lots of homemade croutons on top.  It hit the spot.  The recipe I used was Butternut Squash and Apple Soup .  I did read the views for tips, and I used chicken stock in place of the water for more flavor.   I froze individual portions, and they reheat well without any ice crystals or breaking down of the soup.

Just a note if you make this soup, it is a thick soup.  You can thin it out if you have texture issues.
