Favorite Family Recipes: Curried Butternut Squash and Pumpkin Soup

Whether you’re shopping at fall farmer’s markets or making quick grocery store trips on the weekend, you’re going to find an abundance of squash in the produce aisle. In particular, butternut squash is plentiful in the fall and despite its bulbous shape and intimidatingly thick skin, it’s relatively simple to prepare.

Once you’ve mastered how to peel and cut a butternut squash, you can move onto creating a delicious, comforting pot of soup.  Soon to be new mom Amber Bracegirdle at Bluebonnets and Brownies looks to Curried Pumpkin and Butternut Squash Soup when she needs a bowl of cold weather comfort.

Like most soups, this freezes and reheats well, so it’s a perfect option for making ahead if you’re expecting a baby or if you’re simply bogged down with life and don’t have time to cook dinner every night.
