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.
