Butternut Squash Soup

Another comforting fall and winter classic! Butternut squash soup is one of the easiest, all you need is squash and broth. Spice it up with some herbs and spices of choice. For a creamier soup, you can add cream, sour cream, or Greek yogurt. I topped off these bowls with some fresh ground pepper and grated parmesan cheese which really took it to a new level!

I had made a roasted chicken nights before and used the bones to turn into broth. I highly suggest making your own broth to enhance the flavor, but you can use chicken or veggie stock for the sake of simplicity and time.
