Pretty sure this is the ultimate soup for the first few weeks of fall! Even though it’s still 90 degrees here in Florida and the leaves on the palm trees are not turning shades of orange and red, I use my imagination. A big pot of this Butternut Squash Soup is on the stove and I have the Cranberry Bread Croutons toasting in the oven. I feel like fall gets a bad wrap fro not having colorful food. but I mean are you guys looking at this beautiful bright orange color? I packed in some butternut squash, onions, carrots, celery and green apple. It looks pretty colorful to me!
Instead of making traditional croutons with white bread, I decided to use cranberry walnut bread. It adds a hint of sweetness and unexpected flavor to the soup. Homemade croutons are incredibly simple to make, and make your homemade soup taste that much better.
I’ve always been a huge fan of soup for dinner. The best part is that it can always be made in advanced and all you have to do is add a side salad and maybe some bread to round out the meal. Simple meals really are the best meals. Not only that, purred vegetable soups are incredibly healthy and comforting during these chilly fall months.
