Savory Squash Soup with Butternut and Acorn Squash Recipe

In my opinion this recipe is pretty delicious. The only sweetness comes from the squash and it is a very thick puree (probably not unlike baby food). If you like your soup thinner you may want to add more vegetable broth. This recipe makes approximately 5 quarts and is easy to make a ahead for […]
