Winter Butternut Squash Soup

This recipe was given to me by a wonderful friend and fellow blogger Jamie. I have never made soup before because I feel that most recipes take 10 years to make. This recipe I kid you not takes 10 minutes. What I love about butternut squash soup is that it is SO easy to pair with just about anything. I have put ground turkey and sautéed kale in it as well as turkey sausage. In this picture all I have in addition to the original recipe is a dash of cinnamon. Don’t be scared to make a soup especially one this easy.

Ingredients:

-3 bags of green giant cubed butternut squash steamer bags. (I find mine by the salad in the produce section)- also it’s hit or miss if they are there. You can easily roast your own squash if necessary.
-1 TBS of coconut oil
-1/4 TSP sage
-1/4 TSP of crushed red pepper flakes
-salt and pepper to taste
-2 cups of vegetable broth

Directions:
-Pierce holes in the 3 steamer bags and microwave all 3 for 7 minutes.
– place all squash, spices and broth into a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
