Easy Butternut Squash Soup

Easy Butternut Squash Soup

This recipe for butternut squash soup is so EASY and I’ll tell you why! Normally I buy a butternut squash, cut it in half, clean out the seeds and broil it in the oven (with some olive oil so it won’t stick to the pan) until it is tender.

So I went to the store to pick up some butternut squash to make the soup. When I saw the price of the 4 lb squash I said out loud, “No way am I paying that much! There’s got to be a canned version of this” So this is where the genius comes in. I head over to the frozen section to get something else and guess what…

they make butternut squash frozen! And the best part is it’s already peeled for you! All I had to do is boil some water, dump it into the pot and wait 5-10 mins until tender. Here’s the recipe.
