My recipe for butternut squash soup has sweet, spicy and savoury undertones. A filling satisfying soup which is great for calming cravings. Homemade broth is an essential ingredient to this soup. It gives the soup a wonderful flavour and also provides key minerals like calcium, magnesium and phosphorous in a form your body easily understands. These minerals have been extracted from the bones by long slow cooking. I used chicken bone broth.
You could replace one meal a day like this. I would probably choose this for my evening meal as digestion slows down towards the end of the day. Have a go and let me know what you think.
Made this soup today for the first time and we enjoyed it very much. Did not have any root ginger but had ginger paste of which I used 1 tbsp. Very subtle ginger flavour which was good as I do not like too strong a ginger flavour in savoury dishes. Will add more turmeric and coriander next time as we like more "kick". Also, just used regular chicken broth as that was all I had. Very nice soup. - 18 Dec 2014
