Root Down Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup is a staple meal for me, especially in the fall! I call this my “Root Down” Butternut Squash Soup because it helps me feel nourished and grounded. It highlights a popular root vegetable, sweet potato, too!

Cozy up with this hearty, warming soup on a chilly night. The addition of beans pack in protein, while also adding to the soup’s creamy consistency. Best served with a side of crusty bread!
