Butternut Squash Bisque

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Anna P.

This soup is so nice and has a very creamy consistency. I just love squash, I happened to find this one in one of my cookbooks. I would even use some sweet potato as well, if you wish for extra flavour. Enjoy. :)

I LOVE this soup! I used soy cream instead, since I have one with a dairy allergy. This is really amazing for a chilly Fall evening. The hardest part is preparing the squash. And, as for more zip, you can taste and add more spices as needed... maybe a little Tony Chachere's!
