This is the BEST EVER Easy Butternut Squash Soup! Only a few ingredients to make this incredible soup. This is one of our favorite soups to make on a cold day! (Vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo and clean eating)
This last week has been amazing for me. I celebrated my Birthday last week and then celebrated my 14 year Wedding Anniversary yesterday! Time flies by so quickly! I was looking through my wedding pictures and we looked like babies! We didn’t really celebrate yesterday but will hopefully do something fun this weekend.
I feel like I haven’t gotten any older. I still feel about 18 years old. 😉 But then I think about the fact that I have a son who will be getting his drivers permit in a few months and I can’t even believe it! Like, where in the heck did the time go?! And how in the world am I old enough to have a son that’s that old!
Even though I’m officially an old lady, I’m finally going to go on my very first cruise! My husband and I just booked a cruise for Spring Break for the whole family! I am so super excited but also nervous. We decided to book a short 4 day Mexico one because I wasn’t sure if we would like it. I feel like some people love cruising while others don’t like being stuck on a ship for the majority of the time. Any tips on cruising would be appreciated!
So as soon as we booked the cruise, my husband announced that we have two months to get in “cruise shape”. 😉 I’ve mentioned before that we’ve been meal planning and eating healthier. We usually spend a few hours during the weekend prepping all our meals and packing them for the week ahead. One way that I love getting extra veggies into our diets and love to use for meal prepping is soup.
I think soup is so underrated but it shouldn’t be! This Easy Butternut Squash Soup is one that I’ve made several times and it’s my absolute favorite soup ever!! It’s so easy to make and only has a few ingredients. I do hate peeling and chopping up the squash but you can buy it already pre-chopped in the produce section if you really want to make this Butternut Squash Soup even quicker.
All you have to do is sauté a chopped onion and minced garlic in a little bit of oil. Add in diced butternut squash and vegetable broth and cook until softened. We use our Vitamix Blender to blend it all together and add a little salt and BAM. Soup’s on! If you like the flavor of butternut squash, you will love this Easy Butternut Squash Soup!
