3 ingredient roasted butternut squash soup


This is one of my favorite fall/winter soups. Slightly sweet, earthy and very creamy (without the cream).

All you need is 3 main ingredients: a butternut squash, an onion and chicken stock. Some oil and spices. No milk, no cream. Simple, pure and super yummy.

I kind of went with the flow on the seasoning. I figured paprika, cinnamon, garlic and salt would work well and boy, oh boy, did they deliver!

Single serving of this soup provides with 202% of daily intake of Vitamin A. Great for your eyes, skin, hair and sof tissues.
