Spicy butternut squash soup with turmeric: Bidding a delicious farewell to fall with this ravishing, butternut squash soup: finger-licking good, and just as good for you!
As fall turns inevitably to winter, I am tempted to cash in on the in-season, luscious, butternut squash that is still available in abundance at my neighborhood grocery store. Strangely this fleshy, vibrantly orange fruit (yes, it’s a fruit, but used as a vegetable in most recipes), has its origins right here in Massachusetts, where I live. The yogurt-hot pepper sauce gives this heart-warming soup an unexpected, South Western flair, that’s sure to whet the appetite and have your family slurping it straight out of the bowl. Do not forget to scroll to the bottom of the recipe for the nutrient punch that just a pinch of turmeric can give!
