Recipe: Gluten Free Smoky Butternut Squash Soup

It is officially soup season at our home. It was a dreary, rainy day and the one of the only ways to end it on a good note is to fill my belly with some warm soup. I’ve had a butternut squash sitting on my counter for the last week or so, and this seemed like the perfect occasion to use it. What I like best about this recipe? It’s savory, not sweet like other squash soups. But, more importantly, it’s easy – ready in about 45 minutes without the need to constantly mess with it. Pair it with a salad and you have a fantastically satisfying meal. Vegetarian? No problem! Omit the bacon and use a veggie bouillon cube. Like it spicier? Add more Sriracha to suit your taste.
