Butternut Squash soup used to be something I’d only order in a fancy restaurant. And seeing as though I don’t frequent fancy restaurants, it’s not a dish I was able to enjoy very often.
Then one year I decided I wanted to make this soup for lunch on Thanksgiving day. We eat our big feast at dinner time and therefore we just need a little something to tide us over through the afternoon. And I prefer something that can be made ahead.
This soup fits all those criteria. I make the soup a day or two ahead and keep it in the fridge (still in the pot I made it in so it’s super easy to heat up). I just fry up some sausage while the soup heats up and lunch is ready!
It’s warm and comforting and not at all complicated to make. No need to wait for a fancy occasion to enjoy butternut squash soup anymore!
