I tend to do a lot of things on a whim and this soup is the result of just that.
I was at Costco in the vegetable fridge room and spotted a container of cubed organic butternut squash and knew I would be making some soup….I put it in my cart.
The tomatoes in my original recipe were actually tomatoes I had just cooked down from the last batch from our farmer friend’s garden. It sounded good to me to include them in the soup so the crushed tomatoes in the recipe are the substitute for those I used.
And here is a clip from a Facebook LIVE I did on how I cut up a butternut squash.
The Titan peelers I mention in the video are FABULOUS and can be ordered from Amazon or they are also available at Bed Bath and Beyond.
They are a set of two, one is the straight peeler I show AND another that ZOODLES vegetables beautifully! You can get rid of that spiralizer!
Have fun making this EASY, delicious soup and as always, make it your own!
