Can you believe it's almost the end of September? WTF? How and when the heck did that happen? Well, what better way to welcome in the colder temperatures than with a warm, rich, delicious bowl of butternut squash soup. Hopefully with a glass of fresh apple cider on the side (or even a thick, heavy beer).
And all this recipe requires is butter, veggies, and chicken stock! Boil, blend, and season, and you're good to go. It's as easy as that.
Of course, feel free to experiment by adding anything from garlic to curry powder to nutmeg; you can even substitute sweet potatoes for the regular ones for a little more flavor. And of course, it's a little hard to believe the recipe left this out, but a huge spoonful of sour cream to finish it all off is a must-have. Okay, if you want it to be healthy, well, fine, but come on, what better time to indulge than when the temps cool off and the leaves change colors and you're whipping out the sweaters from the back of your closet.
