Butternut Squash Soup

Soup is one of my favorite meals to have in the winter time. The best part about making your own soup is that you know exactly what you are putting into your recipe. This is a classic Butternut Squash Soup adapted from Whole Foods. It takes very little time and is savory and delicious. Garnish on top with fresh thyme to serve for a professional look. Tastes just as good reheated as it does the day you make it. Hope you enjoy!
