Autumn Is Here! Butternut Squash Soup

Hi,

I am loving the colours on the trees out there at the moment. All of the oranges, browns and yellows, set off with early Autumn sunshine. It is perfect and my absolute favourite time of the year.

This soup is just an awesome, warm and healthy dish which is really needed as the Autumn settles in, and especially if like me you may have indulged in a little too much cake this weekend! With a few simple changes it’ll be perfect for the whole family, including baby. All you’d need to do is reduce the salt by switching the stock cube to a low or no salt one, and of course not adding any further salt. Feel free to give this a kick with some chilli if you want 🙂

Have fun in the cooler weather and wrap up warm.

Love, Natalie x
