Happy almost Friday!
Are you obsessed with butternut squash right now? I am and it’s weird because butternut squash has never been my thing. I love spaghetti squash, I love acorn squash, but I’ve always been pretty “meh” on butternut.
Mostly because it’s really annoying to peel and cut. Like, the worst.
But you know I’ve been obsessed with Panera’s autumn squash soup for the last month or so and I finally got tired of making the 5 minutes drive and 30 minute drive-thru wait for a cup of soup.
This Butternut Squash and Apple Soup is so worth peeling and cutting a butternut squash. I’ve always avoided squash soup recipes that included apple because I assumed they’d be too sweet but the apple adds the perfect amount of sweetness in this recipe. Not too sweet at all.
If you’ve been searching for a good Thanksgiving soup, you should definitely give this one a try! I think this is one pretty much everyone will enjoy!

Omg, peeling and cutting butternut squash is a beast! Buying it pre-cut at my local market is one of the few items I’m willing to pay extra for. And I totally would for this soup!

They are a pain to peel! If I am super lazy I buy them pre-peeled and cut at the grocery store.
This soup looks awesome
