Cream of Butternut Squash Soup

About: Everything needs a garnish. Let's talk food! Follow me on Twitter: @garnishgirl

In the winter, rich butternut squash begs to be roasted, pureed, and made into soups. The vegetable is so creamy and hearty on its own, it takes very little to embellish it. With a quick roast on the stove in butter, then a blend with cream, the winter squash transforms itself from tough cubes of gourd to creamy comfort food.

    Canned pumpkin is really butternut squash with either a little pumpkin, or sweet potatoes added for color.
