WCT Pumpkin Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Benefits of Butternut Squash:

A member of the gourd family, this beautifully shaped hour-glass fruit should definitely be on your next grocery shopping list. Butternut squash is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants that your body craves during the fall and winter months. It is loaded with vitamin A (457% of the daily requirement), vitamin C (52% of the daily requirement), potassium (17% of the daily requirement), fiber and manganese (15% of the daily requirement). These nutrients and antioxidants help promote immune system function, reduce inflammation, reduce your risk of heart disease, aid in weight loss and even help prevent cancer.

Butternut squash is extremely versatile and could be cooked a variety of ways- roasted in the oven, tossed over quinoa or whole wheat pasta, and even added to a deliciously creamy soup. Give this recipe a try and let us know what you think.
