This soul-satisfying, creamy, and rich butternut squash soup is made with roasted butternut squash and comes with a crunchy crumble of pumpkin seeds on top!
Fall is in the air and pumpkin is everywhere… Everyone wants pumpkin flavored this and pumpkin-spiced that. Bah! I’m over here, talking about butternut squash and that can only mean one thing…
Soup is a necessity for fall and winter. You can make a variety of soups: vegetarian, meat lovers, spicy, not spicy. The best thing about soup is that it fills you up with minimal effort. You can make some great Weight Watchers style soups where a gallon of soup is only 0.365 points or you can load them up with gooey cheese and tender meats!
Soup allows you to clean the leftovers out of the refrigerator, add some broth, and turn it into a comforting meal.
Butternut squash soup is a great dish for a chilly night when you feel like you missed your vitamin and nutrient quota for the week, or want for a meatless meal.
You can also serve this soup in shot glasses at a party or as an appetizer! Shot glasses remove the need for spoons.

This soup is healthy so feel free to put a large bore straw in the soup and drink her down! Although, you might not want to suck the seeds through the straw so leave those off if you need to.
If you want to go full Paleo for this soup, omit the gingersnap crumble and just use the seeds!
