Nourishing Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Once fall starts approaching, the weather starts cooling and leaves start falling, my family begins to crave soups. Nourishing, warm soups made with fresh ingredients and plenty of bone broth.

My daughter's ultimate favorite soup is butternut squash. She could eat this almost every day. I always make a different recipe as I haven't found one I really love…until now.

My friend, Craig Fear, who blogs over at Fearless Eating recently released a new book: Fearless Broths and Soups: Ditch the Boxes and Cans with 60 Simple Recipes for Real People on Real Budgets.

AND He let me share this delicious recipe with our readers!

Craig knows soups. He uses soups and broths as a way not just to eat healthy but to help a variety of ailments..from digestive disorders to skin disorders to general immune support. His book lets you get back to the basics cooking soups the way our grandparents cooked soup!!

I made his Asian Beef Noodle Soup last week and ended up eating the leftovers for breakfast and lunch for days!!
