Celiac Saturday: 4 Butternut Squash Soup Recipes To Drool Over

September 17, 2011

Butternut squash is easily on my list of Favorite Fall Foods. Rich and creamy, lightly sweet and perfect for roasting, toasting, pureeing, sauteeing, grating and -- well, you get the point. Perfect for soup, butternut squash pairs especially well with apples, sage and curry. Depending on your meal, each ingredient highlights a different element of the squash's natural flavor profile. Here are 5 of my favorite (gluten free!) butternut squash soup recipes to share with you and yours - perfect for those cold autumn nights.
