I don’t know about you but when I am cold inside and outside the weather is chilly, I want a bowl of hot soup to warm me up. Soup is one of the things I love to make. You can easily simmer broth and spices all day in a crockpot or make it on the stovetop.

Soup and salad go together well and I will never turn down soup and a freshly baked roll (gluten-free).

This is my recipe for Butternut Squash soup taken from The Low-Oxalate Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook: 75 Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, Yeast-Free, Low-Sugar Recipes to Help You Stress Less and Feel Better . 

The soup is not sweet, it’s definitely savory. I encourage you to experiment with the spices and add or subtract what you like.
