Roasted Butternut Squash and Shallot Soup

After the cold front that blew through this weekend I got in the mood for soup! I love soups in the fall! Soups are such a good way to get your veggies. I found this soup from Cooking Light and tried it out for lunch today. I can eat on it all week. So delicious, light and healthy! Here’s the recipe: Roasted Butternut Squash and Shallot Soup

First, you roast the butternut squash and shallots:

Since I couldn’t find pre-cut fresh squash and didn’t feel like cutting up my own, I bought 2 bags of frozen cubed squash in steamer bags. I cooked them in the microwave first, then proceeded with the recipe. Also, since my diet prohibits me from having chicken currently, I used fat-free beef broth. It turned out very yummy! It’s very light because it has no cream in it.

Delish! It would go really well with a side salad or a sandwich too. Happy fall y’all!

Holy Squashamoly!

I had to share a recipe today that was love at first taste. This may be my favorite veggie! I buy pre-cut, fresh butternut squash. It’s fast and a heck of a lot easier than trying to cut one up on your own. I think the brand I buy is Green Giant. Then, toss them with a little olive oil, salt, cinnamon, cumin and onion powder. Roast on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until soft and browned. Delish! So yummy for fall!
