Plant Based Butternut Squash Soup

3/3

As a family, we love to batch cook a variety of dishes in large quantities to share and freeze portions for another day. It’s a wonderful memory making, chaotic day filled with laughter. We gather together at the end of the day to taste, critique, and enjoy animated conversation. Today we prepared three soups. Squash is in abundance now in the midst of fall, so Plant Based Butternut Squash Soup was on our list.

Plant Based Butternut Squash soup requires few ingredients and takes minimal effort to prepare.
