Butternut Squash Soup

By Eric C. Sharer, MPH, RD, CSO, CDN Butternut squash

While a thanksgiving meal can be an elegant celebration of family and friends, it can be stressful for the person cooking the meal. Making a nutritious soup a day or two before the celebration can free up the stovetop or oven for making other recipes. Simply reheat the soup several minutes before the meal and serve. It can be used as an appetizer or an accompaniment to a meal. A butternut squash soup is a delicious as well as nutritious way to add color and variety to your meal. Butternut squash and other orange starchy vegetables are rich in Beta-carotene, an important phytochemical (disease fighting compounds found in plants). Below is additional information about the health benefits of beta-carotene, as well as a delicious Butternut Squash Soup recipe.
